The Nakiri knife is a champion vegetable chopper, slicer and mincer. More slender than a cleaver, the Nakiriís rectangular blade with super-sharp straight edge, easily preps everything from summer tomatoes to winter squashes. That flat edge contacts the cutting board over the entire length of the blade and thus helps to alleviate the dreaded accordion cut. (pieces of produce joined together in a long accordion like strip)
Our Richmond Artifex Nakiri is of average length at 170mm and has a nice thin convex grind with a double (symmetrical) edge which is set at 15 degrees. It has a distal taper towards the tip which enhances its nimble, multi purpose attributes. The construction is mono steel using the popular AEB-L alloy, hardened to HRC 60.5-61. AEB-L is a very strong steel with great stain resistance and edge holding properties. Itís a nice steel to sharpen too.
The Richmond Artifex Nakiri has a nice sized handle made of black linen micarta with a classic 2 rivet design. It is rather like a hybrid of a western full tang and Japanese Wa shape design. The handle is very stable and is built to give you years of worry free use. Finally, this knife is made right here in the United States with our partner Lamson And Goodnow.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
