Nakiri knife

About the Nakiri Knife:

The Nakiri knife is today one of the most popular Japanese knives in the West. Despite its diffusion, few people know that this form of Japanese knife was born as a vegetable knife. In fact, many are distorted by its shape and mistakenly believe that it is a Japanese-style kitchen cleaver. Although its shape in fact recalls that of a Western butcher's cleaver, in reality the characteristics of the blade of the Nakiri knife are not at all compatible with the latter. In fact, the blade of Nakiri knives is generally symmetrical and extremely fine. The reduced thickness has the purpose of facilitating the thin cutting of vegetables. This extremely thin blade is therefore not suitable for dry cuts or breaking small bones as you would generally do with a butcher's cleaver. Among the further characteristics of the Nakiri knife we ​​remember how its blade is generally 15/16 cm long and can be made both with curved edge and with straight edge at the ends.
