The nakiri is sure to attract your attention with its interesting blade shape. A nakiri is a Japanese-style vegetable knife and our beautiful, new Premier Grey Nakiri is the ideal kitchen knife for slicing and dicing most every fruit and vegetable in your kitchen, from apples to zucchini. The nakiri blade shape is extremely practical, too. With its blunt tip, it is safer to use in the kitchen. Due to its straight blade, edge, and spine, the nakiri is not rocked like a chef's knife. Instead, use a push cut by moving the knife down and forward while keeping the edge parallel to the cutting surface. Whether you are preparing vegetables for salad or stir-fry or just using it for all-purpose food prep, you will love using the Shun Premier Grey Nakiri.
