Elevate your cooking with a Damascus Nakiri knife
Damascus Nakiri knives are designed to be thin knives that slice, cut & chop easily through vegetables to maintain the integrity of each component and freshness.
Category: Damascus, Nakiri, Stainless Steel, VG-10, Western Style
Japanese Nakiri knives have long, broad, and flat design allows for ease-of-use when implementing rocking, chopping, cutting, and mincing motions. The double bevel, wide blade allows cooks to prep whole cabbages with ease and the handle clearance allows plenty of room for your hand while working. Easy to work with, it is understandable why the Damascus Nakiri knife is first up when daikon, cabbage, or other vegetables reach the countertop.
Chef knives, on the other hand, are usually longer and heavier, with thicker blades and curved edges. This design makes them better suited for tasks such as chopping meat or crushing garlic cloves.
The Japanese Nakiri knife cannot be used to cut bone or frozen food, as it may chip. You should also avoid using a dishwasher to clean it.
