Nakiri Knife 160mm (6.6") #7393
The Nakiri’s rectangular, flat-edged blade is meant for the push/pull chopping of vegetables. Since the entire flat edge of the knife kisses the cutting board at once, you won’t turn the vegetable into an accordion. Brunoise, julienne, French fries, sliced onions, oblique carrots-this is where nakiris excel. In fact, make onion soup the first day you have a nakiri. The first few cuts will feel odd, but you’ll get the hang of it. After slicing the 10 onions needed for the soup, you’ll be searching the kitchen for another onion to cut just for fun. These knives are addictive.
The 33 layer Sakai Takayuki knives are one of our most popular knives we have and for many years they have been a chef’s favourite. This is due to the outstanding quality of knife and value for money. The handle is made from Mahogany wood in a western style, the blade is stainless steel with a VG10 core and holds a great edge for a very long time. The hammered 33 layer blade is called a moonlit due to it resembling a moonlit waves at sea.
