Nakiri Knife 160mm (6.2") #7423
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 Mirrored Damascus is a very high quality finish to a very stylish knife given you a polished pattern to the blade like no other in the range from Sakai Takayuki and no one knife will look the same due to the 45 layers running through each blade. The core of the knife is AUS 10 Alloy giving you good edge retention and the ability to sharpen it back to its original razor sharp finish. The handle is pakka wood with steel rivets which has been made in a western style giving you comfort and a familiar hold.
