A nakiri is a Japanese-style vegetable knife. Once you use it, you will see why professional chefs and good cooks worldwide choose this beautiful and handy tool whenever they have fruits or vegetables to prepare. With its straight blade, edge, and spine, the nakiri is perfect with a simple push cut. Its blunt end is extra safe and easy to use, too. Hollow-ground indentations in the blade help food release from the edge more easily.
