Fujimoto Nashiji Nakiri 165mm

A Nakiri is a vegetable knife. Under utilized in the Western kitchen, the Nakiri’s flat blade is meant for the push/pull chopping of vegetables. Since the entire flat edge of the knife kisses the cutting board at once, you wont be turning the vegetable into an accordion. Accordion vegetables are still connected like a paper doll after your “done” cutting them. To truly understand the awesomeness of a Nakiri we recommend making onion soup your first night with the knife. The ease of chopping will blow you away.

Care for carbon steel stainless clad knives

  • To maintain the edge, we recommend the usage of a Ceramic Honing Rod. Which can be purchased at 50% off with any knife purchase.
  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • This knife is clad in stainless steel to protect against rust and has exposed carbon steel cutting edge, giving you the best of both worlds. The down side though, is the cutting edge can rust if left to stand for an extended period of time. Over time a patina will form protecting the knife.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.
