Shun Premier Nakiri Knife
SKU: 562348
Order Now. Quantities are limited. Ships Free Online Only

From the makers of Japan's finest cutlery comes the Premier collection with its unique "tsuchime" finish. Hand-hammered texture creates cavities with an effect similar to hollow-ground, reducing drag for a gliding cut and quick release. Durable steel core is clad with 34 layers of high-carbon stainless steel on each side for maximum strength and stability. Oblong pakkawood handle nestles comfortably in the hand, while the stainless steel handle cap adds balance and beauty. These knives offer great edge retention and will never rust or corrode if properly maintained. Japanese for "vegetable knife," the blunt-tipped nakiri features an ultra-sharp blade with indentations designed to reduce friction and minimize drag when cutting fresh produce. Ideal for cutting large quantities of food for salad or stir-fry, the straight blade is designed for use with a push-cut motion, moving the knife up and down and forward while keeping it parallel to the cutting surface.
