Product Details

Shun Premier 5.5" Nakiri Knife - TDM0742

Nakiri is simply Japanese for "vegetable knife." Once you get the Shun Premier Nakiri in your hands, you'll soon see why chefs and cooking enthusiasts the world over choose this beautiful and extremely useful tool whenever they have quantities of fruits or vegetables to chop, slice, or dice. With its straight blade, edge, and spine, the Nakiri shouldn't be rocked like a Chef's knife. Instead, cut straight down and enjoy the clean, swift work it makes of vegetables of all kinds. For daily salad preparation or prepping vegetables for stir-fry, it can't be beat.

Calling to mind the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan, Shun Premier offers the grace and beauty of hand-forged knives of old. Every blade is made of VG10 steel, clad with 32 layers of stainless Damascus, then beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision. Where the two steels meet, a wavy line called a hamon is formed'similar to the line formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The striking hammered finish (tsuchime in Japanese) acts similar to a series of hollow-ground cavities, reducing drag and quickly releasing food from the blade. The walnut PakkaWood® handles nestle comfortably in the hand, and the Shun logo embossed on the bottom end cap adds balance and beauty to the knife, whether in use in the hand or at rest in the block.
