Nakiris are fast becoming a staple in many western kitchens. Their compact size and interesting profile have made them a first choice for general duties by users in both professional and home environments. The flat edge and extra finger clearance make it a great choice for people who favor push cutting over a rocking style. This particular nakiri will amaze you with its ability to fall through the hardest ingredients.
