KS6716N: Wasabi Nakiri Knife

KAI Housewares

If you enjoy cooking with vegetables, you've got to try a nakiri. A nakiri is a Japanese vegetable knife and it makes short work of just about any type of vegetables. From shredding lettuce to preparing a whole fridge-full of veggies for a quick stir-fry, you'll enjoy the quick precision of the Wasabi Nakiri. The distinctive blunt tip of the nakiri makes it less intimidating and extra safe to use. The grazed finish on the Wasabi Nakiri's blade help food release from the blade more quickly and make chopping, slicing, and dicing even more of a pleasure.

The Wasabi Nakiri is part of KAI's Wasabi series. The series features traditional Japanese single-bevel blade shapes as well as a selection of double-bevel Western-style blade shapes. Single-beveled blades excel when extremely precise cuts are needed—for example, when preparing sushi. Double-beveled blades offer ease of use and versatility. Wasabi brings you the best of both worlds. The blades are high-carbon stainless steel designed to take and hold a sharp edge and come with a graze finish that gives them an attractive, brushed look. Paired with black polypropylene handles in a traditional Japanese style, Wasabi brings beauty and harmonious food preparation to any kitchen.

Crazy Sharp
This knife seems like a really high end knife for a not so high end price. I’ve used it for a few months now and it’s holding up great.
