The nakiri is another classic Japanese kitchen knife, this time designed for chopping, slicing and dicing vegetables. This Wusthof Classic 5-inch version has the advantage of a shorter blade, ideal for smaller hands or smaller prep work.
Its finely honed cutting edge is forged from a single blank of high-carbon steel and allows for almost paper-thin slicing. Hollow edging along the blade creates tiny air pockets as vegetables are sliced, preventing the food from clinging to the knife.
- Honed by hand twice
- Hardened to 58 degrees Rockwell to stay sharp longer
- Sharpened to a 10 degree angle to be razor sharp
- Triple riveted ergonomic handle
- Made in Solingen Germany
- Lifetime Warranty
Wusthof Classic knives are called classic for a reason. They are everything a chef expects of a superior knife. They are forged from fine steel and sharpened to a razor sharp edge. The handle is comfortable and handsome. The heft of the knife speaks quality and the balance of the knife is inspiring.
