The Japanese vegetable knife: extremely versatile and suitable for tasks such as cutting, dicing or chopping. The very sharp and finely ground blade is designed to prep vegetables, herbs, and fruit very quickly and finely. The dimpled edge of the knife (slight depressions in the blade that allow small pockets of air to form) prevents ingredients from sticking. Its shape is reminiscent of a cleaver but should not be confused with it, as a Nakiri is not suitable for rough tasks (such as splitting bones). Thanks to the fine wood grain, the Urban Farmer 7" Nakiri offers a comfortable grip and prevents slipping, even when wet.
