The Stir-fry king. From potatoes to zucchini to garlic, this is the veggie pro. A Nakiri is designed for vertical chopping motions to cut vegetables easily. The wide flat blade then works great for lifting from the cutting board into a hot wok or pan.
With its weight concentrated at the rear of the blade, still with the signature balance of all Forge To Table Knives, you have perfect control dicing through vegetables with ease and efficiency.
The VG10 steel we use is more resilient than carbon steel, yet it sharpens with ease, allowing a finer edge. The durability of VG10 steel prevents dulling and rusting. The "kurouchi", or blacksmith finish, is the signature of our forge in Southeast China. It not only looks great but it helps with food release and adds additional protection to the core layers of steel.
