The Xin Cutlery XinCraft XC129 nakiri is a remarkably graceful Japanese-style kitchen knife. The nakiri can be found in almost every Japanese kitchen. The high and square blade is great for quickly cutting vegetables, fruit and herbs. The high blade allows you to safely guide the blade along your knuckles while chopping. This is, without a doubt, the knife you use to finely cut carrots, cucumber, cabbage and any other types of vegetables.
