Description

The Shun Kanso Hollow Edge Nakiri Knife is simply Japanese for "vegetable knife." Once you get the Shun Kanso Nakiri in your hands, you'll soon see why both professional chefs and good cooks around the world choose this beautiful and extremely useful tool whenever they have fruits or vegetables to prepare. With its straight blade, edge, and spine, the nakiri isn't rocked like a chef's knife. Instead, use a simple push cut and enjoy the clean, swift work it makes of vegetables of all kinds. For daily salad preparation or slicing vegetables for stir-fry, it can't be beat. Finely dicing onions is fast, easy, and with the Shun Kanso Nakiri's blunt end, safer, too. The hollow-ground indentations in the blade help food release from the blade more easily, too.

Shun Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy meaning "simplicity," but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. Features high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. The blade is constructed of Japanese AUS10A highly refined high-carbon vanadium stainless steel sharpened to a 16° cutting angle each side to cut cleanly and help preserve food's freshness and best taste, providing a razor-sharp edge that holds longer. The Heritage finish blade hides scratches and gives a rustic look that just improves with age. The handle is made of tagayasan wood, sometimes known as "iron sword wood." The full tang construction provides strength, balance, and easy cutting control. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty.

    Incredibly sharp

    Japanese steel has no peer for sharpness and this vegetable knife is no exception. It's light, comfortable in the hand and cuts through vegetables as if it's cutting through air.
