Full Bolster

The full bolster reliably protects your fingers in everyday cooking and the balance makes agile and precision work easier.

Full Tang

As an extension of the blade, the tang gives the knife reliable stability. In addition, as a counterweight, it ensures the blade is balanced.

Hand Guard

The handle sits in the hand comfortably and is curved slightly downwards at the heel to avoid slipping. The robust handle shells are secured with stainless steel rivets and manufactured seamlessly.

The Japanese vegetable knife: extremely versatile and suitable for tasks such as cutting, dicing or chopping. Its shape is reminiscent of a cleaver but should not be confused with it as a Nakiri is not suitable for rough tasks (such as splitting bones). The very sharp and finely ground blade is more designed to prep vegetables, herbs and fruit very quickly and finely. The dimpled edge of the knife (slight depressions in the blade that allow small pockets of air to form) prevents foods from sticking.
