This little beauty is a small, uniquely shaped vegetable knife. It has a flat edge like a Nakiri. Making it perfect for chopping herbs or slicing small vegetables like shallots or garlic. Its compact size makes it great for line cooks. The extended blade height is awesome for people who have bigger hands and have a tough time keeping their knuckles off the cutting board. Originally designed to cut rubber soles for shoemaking, the Kamagata compliments any knife collection.
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.
