If you enjoy cooking with vegetables, you've got to try a nakiri. A nakiri is a Japanese vegetable knife and it makes short work of just about any type of vegetables. From shredding lettuce to preparing a whole fridge-full of veggies for a quick stir-fry, you'll enjoy the quick precision of the Wasabi Black Nakiri. The distinctive blunt tip of the nakiri makes it less intimidating and extra safe to use. The hollow-ground indentations in the Wasabi Black Nakiri's blade help food release from the blade more quickly and make chopping, slicing, and dicing even more of a pleasure.
The Wasabi Black Nakiri is part of Kai’s Wasabi Black series. The series features traditional Japanese single-bevel blade shapes as well as a selection of double-bevel Western-style blade shapes. Single-beveled blades excel when extremely precise cuts are needed—for example, when preparing sushi. Double-beveled blades offer ease of use and versatility. Wasabi Black brings you the best of both worlds. The blades are high-carbon stainless steel designed to take and hold a sharp edge and come with a graze finish that gives them an attractive, brushed look. Paired with black polypropylene handles in a traditional Japanese style, Wasabi Black brings beauty and harmonious food preparation to any kitchen.
