Nakiri Knife

Ready, set, prep! Our 6.5" stainless-steel Nakiri is a versatile knife for chopping, slicing & mincing. The riveted handle, full-tang construction, and nice heavy blade makes for sharp, even slicing of fruits and vegetables. The long cutting edge and squared off end makes it possible to slice all the way through to the cutting board without having to rock or pull the knife. To top it off, the blunt end and long blade makes for moving chopped ingredients to your pan a cinch. This knife is similar to a cleaver, but has a sharper and narrower blade to slice easily through tougher fruits and vegetables.  Upgrade your cooking tools and get ready for versatile chopping!

What is the Nakiri Knife best for?
The Nakiri Knife was designed to be great at slicing and chopping harder vegetable like potatoes, hard squash, carrots, celery, and radishes.

What is the best way to weild the Nakiri?
The Nakiri is squared off at the end without a point, so use this blade from tip to tail completely when cutting vegetables and doing any kind of vegetable or fruit prep. This knife is meant to slice, dice, and chop through vegetables, fruits, and herbs not for precision cutting around bone like you would do with the long pointed blade of a Chef’s Knife. When using the Nakiri, come straight down on the vegetable, herb, or fruit, as opposed to a rocking style used with many other knives.

Can the Nakiri also be used on meat?
The Nakiri is optimized for fruits and vegetables, so there are certainly other knives that may be better for meat, like the cleaver. Cleavers typically have a much thicker blade and wider blade geometry to chop through bone, cartilage, and bigger pieces of connective tissue. Instead, the Nakiri is best at more delicate, fine work, like cutting vegetables very thin. For meat prep that does not include chopping through bone, we recommend the Santoku Knife.

What special dish is the Nakiri perfect for?
It is great for salads because you can easily chop and slice everything to be really thin for fanning out as beautiful salad-top garnishes, as matchstick style mix-ins, or as minced ingredients to evenly suffuse flavors throughout the salad.

The Perfect Knife

This is my favorite knife and really the only one I use. It's used daily, multiple times a day on a wide variety of foods. The value and quality is absolutely amazing.

The One

If you need one knife; this Nakiri knife is it. We use it for all our food prep. The weight makes chopping easy and the width allows for use nice control and frankly you will feel like a pro when it comes to chopping. The pricepoint and quality are fantastic. One note of advice to all, buy TWO. You are likely to get into an ownership tussle with others at home 🙃

Nice, sharp knife for the money

Laura Brown

We have needed knives for some time but they are so expensive. This knife was so reasonable and it’s like having a pro knife in the drawer. Highly recommend

Michael Saylor
Great prep knife, holds an edge too!

Great value for a quality kitchen knife at a price that was very affordable. Negative I sent two inquires to customer support and never received a reply. Sad.
