* As our kitchen knives are hand-made (some with natural materials like timber), small variation to size and colour may occur.

* High carbon Japanese knives will change colour (patina) in use, they require a small amount of care to prevent surface rust. This knife is stainless clad, only the cutting edge is high carbon.

Japanese Kitchen Knife | Nakiri (Vegetable Knife)

Nakiri knives are a specialist Japanese vegetable cutting knife that can also be used as your primary kitchen knife, depending on your cutting style.
Nakiri knives have a flat profile and tall blade height which aids in push chopping but does make rock style cutting a little uncomfortable. The Nakiri, like many western style chef knives has a double bevel grind, in contrast to the Japanese style vegetable knife, the Usuba, which is single bevel. Whilst a Gyuto or Santoku does do a good job at cutting vegetables, the larger flat bottom of a Nakiri or Usuba make the task much easier. The Nakiri is one of our favourite profiles, highly recommended.
