Description
KSVG0028: VG0028 Dual Core 6.5" Nakiri Knife
Shun Cutlery

Nakiri is simply Japanese for "vegetable knife." The first thing you'll notice about the knife is the blade shape. Not only does it look beautiful, but it also serves as a practical tool for professional and home chefs around the world. The Nakiri's blunt tip makes the knife safer to use. At the same time, you can easily process vegetables with blade's slicing and dicing power. Simply use a push cut by moving the knife down and forward while keeping the edge parallel to the cutting surface. If you love vegetables for salad or stir fry, then the Dual Core Nakiri is a must have. 

About the Shun Dual Core series: Until now, it was considered almost impossible to create layered Damascus from two premium-quality stainless steels. But what was impossible is now a reality—and Shun is proud to bring it to your kitchen. The Shun Dual Core series features a Damascus blade made from two premium-quality, high-carbon stainless steels. Seventy-one alternating micro layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steels are roll-forged to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. The laminated steel is then hot forged to create the herringbone pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge. During normal use, the two steels will wear at different rates creating micro serrations along the edge so that the Dual Core's extremely sharp edge feels sharp longer. Etched laminations in the blade reduce drag, helping food release from the blade and gliding through each cut quickly and easily. Dual Core blades are thin, light, and strong. Traditional Japanese octagon-shaped handles in ebony PakkaWood provide a comfortable and secure grip to complete the look of these beautiful knives.

Includes traditional Japanese wooden saya, or sheath.
