Quite simply, “nakiri” is Japanese for ""vegetable knife."" Great for salad or stir-fry preparation.
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. Because of its straight blade, edge, and spine, the Nakiri isn’t rocked like a chefs 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. All Shun Premier knives come in a beautifully presented gift box.
