The Nakiri blade has has an upturned, flat tip with a very tall blade that is perfect for push cutting and chopping all manner of vegetable. The flat, wide blade is also great for transferring chopped vegetable from board to pan.

Black G10 ferrules with contrasting white liners lend a more traditional style without compromising performance or comfort. The material is durable, nonporous, heat resistant and easy to clean.
