Nakiri is simply Japanese for "vegetable knife." The blade shape is beautiful and practical, chosen by professional chefs and home cooks around the world. The Nakiri's blunt tip makes the knife safer to use. At the same time, you can easily process vegetables with blade's slicing and dicing power. Simply use a push cut by moving the knife down and forward while keeping the edge parallel to the cutting surface. If you love vegetables for salad or stir fry, then the Dual Core Nakiri is a must have.
