Nakiri knives: Japanese vegetable knives for finely cut vegetables
A nakiri is a traditional Japanese vegetable knife. In Japan, vegetable knives are known as nakiri (double-sided grind) or usuba (one-sided grind). You can recognize a nakiri by its rectangular blade shape. The tip of the knife is slightly rounded. This is, without a doubt, the knife you use to finely cut carrots, cucumber, cabbage and any other types of vegetables. But chopping herbs is also a piece of cake. At Knivesandtools, you will find nakiris from brands such as Sakai Takayuki, Tojiro, Miyabi, Kai and Eden.
