A classic Japanese vegetable knife design - The flat, wide blade is perfect for slicing cleanly and showing off that incredible patterned finish.
Typical shaped blade for a Nakiri, if you've never used one before buy one! They are a wonderful addition to any kitchen.
They look amazing and perform even better which just makes cooking a pure joy, I sometimes chop extra veg just so I can keep using it. The squared off tip gives you great confidence in using it as its much harder to do yourself any damage so holding onions, etc while you do some delicate thin slicing is much safer.
