Nakiri is simply Japanese for "vegetable knife." Once you get the Shun
Classic Nakiri in your hands, you'll soon see why both professional
chefs and good cooks around the world choose this beautiful and
extremely useful tool whenever they have fruits or vegetables to
prepare. With its straight blade, edge, and spine, the nakiri isn’t
rocked like a chef's knife. Instead, use a simple push cut and enjoy the
clean, swift work it makes of vegetables of all kinds. For daily salad
preparation or slicing vegetables for stir-fry, it can't be beat. Finely
dicing onions is fast, easy, and with the Shun Classic Nakiri’s blunt
end, safer, too.
The Shun Classic Nakiri is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful
and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features beautiful
Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Yet behind
these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades
offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX
steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus
stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing
pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are
sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both
traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can
always find the right knife for the task.
