This would be a GREAT companion to a Wusthof santoku or chef's knife! It's like the Classic santoku in terms of handle and blade size, but the edge is straighter and the whole blade is more rectangular, making it great for dicing veggies. If you like doing stir-frys, you should love this knife! Note that this is NOT a cleaver -- it is thin and sharp, and so should be treated like any fine knife, and should NOT be used on bones or other such hard materials which can damage the thin and sharp edge.
- Forged from one piece of specially tempered high carbon steel to ensure outstanding strength.
- High impact resistant black handle made of synthetic material.
- Wide, thin blade.
- Very sharp.
- Made in Solingen / Germany.
The blade shape finds its origin in Japan. A versatile vegetable cleaver for slicing, dicing and chopping even large vegetable. A pleasure to use for fruit as well. Thanks to the thin and wide blade it produces very fine and even cuts . The hollow edge helps prevent thin slices from sticking to the blade. The blade can be easily controlled. And like all WÜSTHOF knives the sharpness of the Nakiri can be easily maintained by using any standard sharpening tool.
