About the Shape - Underutilized 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 touches the cutting board at once, you won't be turning the vegetable into an 'accordion', pieces that are still connected by a thread after you've cut them. The added weight of the blade allows it to fall through food more easily while you chop, so the knife does more of the work for you! How great is that?
Dchoi Designs has created a saya that is not only beautiful but also practical for everyday use. Rare Earth magnets hold the saya in place on the knife while never coming into contact with the steel, so you never have to worry about losing your saya pin again! Dchoi sayas are made to fit more universally so it provides a custom feeling fit, while allowing space for variation in both shape and size.
Depending on shape this should accommodate knives that are 60mm tall or shorter and 3mm wide spine or narrower.
