The Shun Classic Blonde Nakiri Knife is Japanese for "vegetable knife." Ideal for slicing, dicing, and chopping when processing vegetables. Because of its straight blade, edge, and spine, the Nakiri isn't rocked like a chef's knife. Instead, use a push-cut by moving the knife down and forward while keeping the edge parallel to the cutting surface. If you cut a lot of vegetables for salad or stir-fry, you will simply love using this Shun Nakiri.
The Shun Classic Blonde series features beautiful Damascus-clad blades with D-shaped PakkaWood handles in a light and beautiful natural wood tone. The razor-sharp blades offer top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel provides incredible edge retention. Blades are handcrafted of durable clad with Damascus stainless steel, ground and bead-blasted creating a flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to hold.
