Nakiri knives: Japanese vegetable knife for finely cut vegetables
A Nakiri knife 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. The tip of the knife is slightly rounded to make sure you can also quickly cut vegetables from an angle. This is, without a doubt, the knife you use to finely cut carrots, cucumber, cabbage and any other types of vegetables. But also finely cutting herbs is a piece of cake. Nakiri knives are becoming more and more popular. This isn't that surprising. Today we spend a lot of time on being healthy and, as such, on cutting a whole lot of vegetables!
