The Shun Premier 5.5-inch Nakiri Knife is Japanese for "vegetable knife." The blunt tip is safer to use in the kitchen, but without sacrificing any of the slicing, dicing, and chopping power you need 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. The Shun Premier 5.5-inch Nakiri Knife is the perfect knife for cutting vegetables for salad or stir fry.
Shun pronounced "shoon" in Japanese, means- "at the peak of perfection". Each knife is handmade by skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete one knife. Shun Premier knives feature a VG-10 super steel core encased with a Damascus clad 32-layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel, 16-layers on each side. The Damascus steel supports and protects the core, which provides toughness, and is stain resistant. The hammered tsuchime design acts as a hollow-ground and releases the food easily from the blade when slicing. Each Shun knife provides a Japanese blade angle of 16°. You will enjoy the ease of cutting the thinnest slices without bruising or tearing the most delicate foods while prepping; this ensures the ingredients to stay intact, retain flavor, and stay fresh. The blade is complimented by a D-shaped traditional Japanese handle, made out of walnut stained PakkaWood. Shun offers a full assortment, so you will always find the right knife for the task. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty. Handwashing is recommended.
