Nakiri is simply Japanese for "vegetable knife." Both professional chefs and good cooks choose this beautiful and extremely useful tool for fruits or vegetables. Its straight blade, edge, and spine, is a simple push cut. 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 Kanso Nakiri’s blunt end, safer, too. The hollow-ground indentations in the blade help food release from the blade more easily, too.
