In many Japanese kitchens the nakiri or usuba has always been traditionally used the most for vegetable prep. The longer flat edge is designed to push smoothly through vegetables and for anyone who prepares a lot of vegetable it's a fantastic tool for the job.
Other general use chef knives like the gyuto, santoku and bunka are also commonly used for vegetable prep thanks to their overall versatility.
Cutting Edge Knives is a family run business established in 2011 and based in the picturesque town of Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. We love the history and craftsmanship that goes into making Japanese chef knives and accessories and the excitement and enjoyment you experience when using a truly sharp knife in the kitchen.
Over many years we've helped thousands of happy customers find their dream knife and look forward to helping you too.
