Nakiri is simply Japanese for "vegetable knife." Once you get the Shun Classic 6.5 inch Nakiri in your hands, you'll soon see why both professional chefs and home cooks around the world choose this beautiful and extremely useful tool whenever they have fruits or vegetables to prepare. With its straight blade, edge, and spine, the nakiri isn't rocked like a chef's knife. Instead, use a simple push cut and enjoy the clean, swift work it makes of vegetables of all kinds. For daily salad preparation or slicing vegetables for stir-fry, it can't be beat. Finely dicing onions is fast and easy with the Nakiri's blunt end. While the blade is extremely strong and will hold its edge, Japanese Steel does not have flexibility so we do not advise using this knife on bone in meats, frozen fruits, or stone cutting boards.

Faraday's carries the Shun Classic, Shun Premier and Shun Kanso kitchen knife lines made by KAI USA. The beautiful Classic line of Shun Japanese cutlery features the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without its rusting problems. This look is achieved by 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel, wrapped around the VG-10 center core. The D-shaped handle rests precisely in the curve of the fingers. The black PakkaWood handles provide the beauty of genuine wood, but since the wood is impregnated with a waterproof resin, the handles are as durable as plastic and dishwasher safe! (Although we NEVER recommend putting your knives in the dishwasher!)
