A nakiri is a Japanese-style vegetable knife. If you haven't used Japanese-style knives before, the nakiri is sure to attract your attention due to its interesting shape. Yet this blade shape is quite practical, too. With its blunt tip, the Shun Premier Nakiri is safer to use in the kitchen, but without sacrificing any of the slicing and dicing power you need when processing vegetables and other foods. Because of its straight blade, edge, and spine, the nakiri isn't rocked like a chef's knife. Instead, use a push cut by moving the knife down and forward while keeping the edge parallel to the cutting surface. If you cut vegetables for salad or stir-fry, you will simply love using the Shun Premier Nakiri.


Key Features:

  • Exceptionally sharp knife handcrafted in Japan and made of proprietary VG-MAX super steel core for a harder yet lighter blade
  • Features 68 microlayers of Damascus cladding with a tsuchime or hammered finish for easier food release
  • Hand-sharpened 16 double-bevel blade at a 32 comprehensive angle results in thinner edges and sharpness that lasts for a long time
  • Designed with a wide blade and curved belly for knuckle protection and efficient rocking motion when slicing
  • Sturdy, contoured walnut PakkaWood handle suits both left and right-hand users
  • Embossed endcap and brass ring on the handle adds beauty and balance while cutting
  • Equip your kitchen with other individual knives or sets from the Shun Premier range
