In the simplest of terms, ‘Na’ means leaf and ‘kiri’ means cut, showing the Japanese designed this knife with one task in mind.

The delicate rectangular blade of the Nakiri makes swift work of soft ingredient prep, favoring a simple push-to-cut technique that’s as effective on salad as on a thick-skinned squash.

  • Purpose-built for fine slicing
  • Thinner blade with a razor-sharp edge
  • Sturdy enough to chop tougher vegetables
  • AUS-10 steel core and 66 layers of Damascus steel
  • Distinctive handle carved from abalone shell

When stir-fries and salads are a regular feature at home, the 8” Nakiri makes vegetable prep a joy.

Your New Favorite Chef Knife

The Nakiri knife is a Japanese-style knife mainly used to chop, mince and slice vegetables. It can also be used on fruits. It has a broad, straight-edged blade with a square tip, and allows you to chop vegetables without needing to 'rock' the blade.

For the money, it’s the best chef’s knife I’ve come across. Easy to hone, super sharp, lightweight with a comfortable grip but sturdy enough to use on side for crushing garlic and other herbs and spices. Hold edge pretty well considering the price. Has become my kitchen go-to for food prep
