The Nakiri knife has the classic rectangular shape of a wide blade with a flattened tip. This type of Asian knife is used to slice extra-thin slices of vegetables, specifically those without hard seeds. Use these lovely vegetable wafers for evenly, quick cook stir-fry and lovely salad add-ins. These traditional Asian style knives have a double edge with a 15 degree angle that is ambidextrous, so it can be used by lefties. The design and shape of this knife is to add swiftness to this chopping style. Everything Kitchens carries a wide assortment Nakiri knives as well as Usuba knives from top cutlery brands like Shun, Zwilling, Wusthof, Kikuichi and more.
