The first thing you notice about the nakiri is its unique blade shape. With its squared-off tip and straight cutting edge, it is a very eye-catching blade. In Japan, a nakiri is a vegetable knife and this beautiful kitchen knife is designed to handle a full range of vegetables, and a lot more, with ease. Use it with a simple push cut instead of a rocking cut. The straighter edge means more of the blade contacts the board with each cut for extremely efficient slicing and dicing. The shorter 6.5-inch length and squared tip make the nakiri especially easy to control with precision. The Shun Classic Blonde Nakiri is a gorgeous addition to the Shun Classic Blonde series and it will make a perfect addition to your kitchen, too.
