"Nakiri" means vegetable knife in Japanese, and the Wusthof Classic Nakiri is ideal for slicing and dicing all types of vegetables. Use the straight blade to make push cuts quickly and easily. The blade of a Nakiri is thinner than the blade of a cleaver. The blade edge is also sharpened at a more acute angle than Western-style blades. The hollow-ground indentations help prevent food from sticking to the blade.
The Wusthof Classic collection offers the widest range of cutlery and has been Wusthof's best selling series of knives for generations. The blade is forged from X50CrMoV15 steel and sharpened with Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) for superior blade sharpness and edge retention. This high-carbon stainless steel includes vanadium for durability and wear resistance, and molybdenum for hardness and corrosion resistance. Full tang construction offers balance and strength while cutting. The triple-riveted knife handle is made from a highly durable synthetic that resists fading and discoloration, with a full bolster and finger guard.
