Nakiri is simply Japanese for "vegetable knife." Once you get the Shun Classic Nakiri in your hands, you'll soon see why chefs and cooking enthusiasts the world over choose this beautiful and extremely useful tool whenever they have quantities of fruits or vegetables to chop, slice, or dice. With its straight blade, edge, and spine, the Nakiri shouldn't be rocked like a Chef's knife. Instead, chop straight down and enjoy the clean, swift work it makes of vegetables of all kinds. For daily salad preparation or chopping vegetables for stir-fry, it can't be beaten.
Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary designs feature beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Behind the knives’ beauty is a function: razor-sharp blades offering the most extreme performance possible. Shun’s VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, creating a woodgrain pattern that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion-resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. Shun Classic also offers the widest assortment of both traditional blade shapes and cutting edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
