About the Shape - 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 you're “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.
About Haruyuki Enju -The stunning Enju series from Haruyuki is perfect for any home cook or young chef looking for a set of sexy, reliable, and rugged kitchen knives. The AUS10 steel core takes a blazingly sharp edge and is sandwiched between a cascade of gorgeous damascus steel. The simple, elegant Enju wood handle gives this line its name, and we love the minimalist look of a single piece of wood used for the handle.
