Carefully designed to convey a look of stealthy motion, like a shadow racing through the dark, or a gust of wind blowing through the night, the Phantom Series of knives are elegant, agile and ruthless culinary instruments of exceptional performance. The Nakiri is a favorite among Asian knives for its proficiency, and is essential for any chefs who find themselves prepping vegetables in bulk. Precision forged from a single piece of ice tempered steel, the blade’s straight edge, spine and nose, make it a push-cut specialist, while the wider blades assists in scooping up food for transfer. Improving this blade further are it’s own unique rock-hollow divots, which minimize stuck on food and reduce friction.

Near the bolster a distinct red spacer and carefully crafted mosaic of copper and brass ensures adds elegance and refinement.
