Nakiri knife for vegetables Migaki 165 mm


254,60 € tax incl.

The Nakiri knife has a square blade, traditionally used for cutting vegetables. Its wide blade is useful to gather the sliced food and add them to your preparation. It is very used for slicing herbs. The nakiri is close to the usuba knife but it is used more easily. Indeed, the usuba is traditionally with a simple bevel and make even slighter cuts. 

Knives with double bevels are knives sharpened on both sides of the blade. It is the kind of knife used in Europe. Our knives with double bevels are the perfect match between double bevels and traditional Japanese blade. The blade enables a precise and clear cut.

The material used for the blades is a mix of steel and iron. It means that the blades require special care in order to keep them in a good condition and avoid rust. The blades must be well dried after use. They also must be sharpened with water whetstone available on our website.
