The nakiri is primarily used as a vegetable knife. Not often found in Western kitchens, the nakiri’s flat blade is made for the efficient chopping of vegetables using a push/pull cutting style. The almost flat blade contacts the cutting board all at once, minimizing the chance of accordion cutting. (After the job is finished, accordion cut produce is still connected like a paper doll.) Once you get to prep a meal’s worth of vegetables with an ease never before experienced, you will be a convert.

The Shun Classic nakiri uses the VG-10 stainless “super steel.” This is covered with 13 layers on each side of softer stainless steel. The Damascus style blade comes out of the box with a screaming edge. And this edge stays the course through the longest sessions. Ease of sharpening and general maintenance are hallmarks of this nakiri. A pakka wood handle with stainless bolster and end cap are seamlessly attached to the blade. 

A lifetime warranty is provided.

    I used this knife at culinary school. A friend of mine at school carries almost all Shun knives. Well one day he walked in with this and I had to use it since I was considering buying a nakiri. I must say this knife is amazing. I loved the feel,the sharpness of the edge,and wish I could have owned it right then.

    Love this knife. So fun to use. Sharp is an understatement. Funny but suppliers in Canada won’t/don’t stock this Nakiri. Chef Knives to go is reasonably priced and shipping to Canada no problem. I’m very happy,and plan to order more Shun Classics.

    Excellent quality and usability. The ergonomic handle makes for a comfortable and very controllable grip. It’s super sharp and makes cutting vegetables effortless.
