The Pure Komachi 2 Hollow-Ground Nakiri is bright, “veggie” green to remind you to eat your vegetables—and to prepare them using this handy knife. A nakiri is simply a Japanese-style vegetable knife. With its straight edge, use a simple push cut to cut through a wide variety of fresh vegetables. If you’re a fan of stir-fry dishes or salads, we predict that the Pure Komachi 2 Hollow-Ground Nakiri is going to become one of your favorite knives. To make your vegetable prep tasks even easier, the hollow-ground indentations in the blade help food release more quickly from the blade.
Like all Pure Komachi 2 knives, the Slicing Knife offers brilliant performance. The bright colors on both blade and handle make Pure Komachi 2 knives fun to use and they add eye-catching color to your kitchen. What’s more, those bright colors have a purpose. The color-coding helps guard against cross-contamination of food—for instance, by using the knife you just used on the meat to cut the veggies. The coated carbon stainless steel blades, hand-sharpened to a 16° cutting angle on each side, make quick work of most any kitchen task. The molded resin handles and comfortable and contoured for a secure grip. The blade coating is food safe and easy clean. While they are dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing to prolong the life of your blade as well as the colorful blade coating. Pure Komachi 2 knives now come with a matching sheath for easy storage.
