Nakiri (菜切り) means "vegetable knife" in Japanese and is the traditional, Japanese vegetable knife, which is indispensable in the Japanese kitchen - as well as in the Asian kitchen.

It's the perfect vegetable knife, which with its rectangular shape makes it easy to cut both big and small vegetables. You can use it for splitting big root vegetables and finely chop smaller vegetables, and you work with your knuckles safely turned against the blade.

This knife has a beautiful, classic magnolia wooden handle, and the blade is burned into the handle using traditional techniques. This type of wood is very soft and light, which makes the knife pleasant to work with. It's the preferred type of handle in the Japanese kitchen.

How to care for and maintain your knife

  • Always wash your knives by hand with a soft brush/sponge and dry immediately after. Never wash your knives in the dishwasher.
  • Store your knife in a knife block or on a wooden magnetic knife holder. Never store it in a kitchen drawer with other tools.
  • Don't use the knives on frozen foods or bones. Instead, use a knife made for that purpose - like a boning knife.
  • Avoid scraping bits of food off the cutting board with the cutting edge. Make it a habit to turn the knife around and scrape with the spine/back instead of the edge.
