Once you pick up a Shun Kanso Nakiri, you’ll see why both professional and home cooks the world over choose this beautiful and useful tool when preparing fruits or vegetables. Nakiri is simply Japanese for vegetable knife. With its straight blade, edge and spine, the nakiri is not curved for rocking like a chef’s knife. Instead, a simple push cut is used and swift work is made of vegetables of all kinds. Finely dicing onions is fast and easy, but with the Kanso Nakiri’s blunt end, it’s safer, too. The hollow-ground indentations along the edge of the blade help food to release more easily.
