Poised and ready to make short work of all your veggies, the unique pattern of hammer finish isn't just for looks - it's to help the knife glide through the food and release as you cut.
The nakiri might look like a meat cleaver but it's a typical vegetable knife shape designed to help scoop your chopped veg into the pan with ease. Every knife in the V1 range is uniquely hammer finished and combines nicely with the more Western styled handle and we'd be remiss not to point out that the price for this knife is exceptional for the level of finish and quality on offer.
