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.
