Ryusen Prever Nakiri 175mm

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 Ryusen Prever - Ryusen Hamono was founded in 1948 as a knife sharpening company. They worked with companies like Takefu Special Steel as early as the 1970s to develop high-quality knives made with stainless steel, at a time when most other knife makers were struggling to produce decent stainless steel knives. Now, they have expanded their collection of knives not only having sharpness and longevity in mind but with a sleek modern design.

The classy Prever series carries the prestige of a luxury car, combining Japanese and European design elements into one elegant package. The VG10 stainless steel core offers top-notch performance without difficult maintenance, and the 66-layer damacus cladding takes it to the next level. The Canadian walnut handle featured a European-style bolster for extra heft.
