Nakiri Knife

minus
plus

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!

Details

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.

Now that’s a knife—sorry, long throwback to Crocodile Dundee

We received this knife about a month ago. We wanted to give it a good trial. We love it. It’s simple for my height and size challenged daughter to use easily (she’s too thin). It’s simple for me to use & our son considers himself a knife connoisseur. He has approved it since chopping his first pineapple with it. The length is just right. It IS a hearty knife, but that means the job gets done faster & better. This Smith family highly recommends the Nakiri Knife.

I ran it through my electric sharpener and the edge is first rate. Great value.

Great Quality!

I love the knives from Brandless. They are super affordable but they do not rust like other cheap knives. Been using their knives for years and just bought the Nakiri. Love it along with all the others. Highly recommend!

Different, but nice.

I like the feel and the weight of the knife, evenly distributed. Taking me a minute to get out of the habit of rolling my wrist (like when using a chef's knife) for cleaner cutting. It is quickly becoming a favorite!
