Additional Information

The Shun Premier Grey 5.5" Nakiri Knife introduces a blend of elegance and functionality with its unique blade shape. "Nakiri," translating to "vegetable knife" in Japanese, perfectly encapsulates its purpose as an indispensable tool for slicing and dicing a wide array of fruits and vegetables. Its distinctive blunt tip and straight blade, edge, and spine make it exceptionally practical for precision cutting tasks.

Unlike traditional chef's knives, the nakiri knife is not rocked during use due to its straight blade design. Instead, it excels in push cuts, where the knife is moved downward and forward while maintaining the edge parallel to the cutting surface. This technique ensures clean and precise cuts, making it a favorite among culinary enthusiasts for vegetable preparation.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Shun Premier Grey Nakiri Knife boasts a VG-MAX cutting core renowned for its wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and ability to maintain a fine, sharp edge. Its blade features 68 layers of Damascus cladding, not only enhancing its visual appeal but also providing added support and protection to the core. The hammered TSUCHIME finish further aids in food release during cutting, ensuring effortless slicing every time. Completed with a stylish grey PakkaWood handle designed for comfort and control, this nakiri knife is a testament to Japanese craftsmanship and innovation, handcrafted to perfection in Japan.
