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 won't 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 Nami-The Haruyuki Nami is named for ocean waves, its whirlpool pattern reminiscent of the swirling waters. A core of AUS10 stainless steel allows the Nami to take a blazingly sharp, yet durable edge and is sandwiched between two pieces of spiral damascus. The minimalist oak handle is reminiscent of a fishing boat bobbing in the waves, the perfect complement to this eye-catching blade.
