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 Nakiri chef 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.
