Nakiri Vegetable Knife 6" | Shogun Series ELITE | Dalstrong ©
The Dalstrong Shogun Series Elite 6” AUS-10V nakiri knife with a beautiful tsuchime finish. The Supreme function meets stunning elegance. The nakiri knife is a brutally effective vegetable assassin, and one of the most popular and essential blade styles among the Asian knife types. The word “Nakiri” can be broken down to “na” meaning ‘leaf’ in Japanese, and ‘kiri’ meaning ‘cutting’, a testament to its specialized nature. Hours of prep work are made easy with the Shogun Series nakiri in your hand, working tirelessly alongside you day in and day out. The straight edge, spine and nose of the knife make it a push-cut specialist, while the wider blades assist in scooping up food for transfer. If you find yourself cutting ample amounts of leafy greens, vegetables or fruit, this is an essential addition to your cutlery collection. The exquisite hammered tsuchime finish is not only a beautiful statement in craftsmanship, it also serves the purpose of reducing drag and minimizing stuck on food.
