KSDM0728: Nakiri with Ebony-black PakkaWood Handle
Shun Knives

The Nakiri is great for everyday functions requiring precision slicing and straight cuts. The blade shape finds its origin in Japan. The Nakiri is a versatile vegetable cleaver for slicing, dicing and chopping even large vegetables. It is ideal for chopping piles of herbs, vegetables or boneless meats with its larger, deeper blade. It is also a pleasure to use for fruit as well. Thanks to the thin and wide blade it produces very fine and even cuts . The blade can be easily controlled.

This stunningly beautiful line of classic cutlery features the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without its rusting problems. The Damascus-look blade profile reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times.

- VG-10 stainless steel is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon steel on each side, producing a 33-layer rust-free Damascus look
- VG-10 "super steel" is composed of Carbon, Chromium, Cobalt, Manganese, Molybdenum, Silicon, and Vanadium
- Shun Classics feature Ebony-black PakkaWood® handles specifically designed for premium applications
- Stainless-steel bolsters and end caps
- Dishwasher safe
- NSF approved

In addition to their clad VG-10 blades, The Shun Classics also feature our uniquely stable "D" shape handle design.

The "D" shape rests precisely in the curve of the fingers as they curl around the handle. The asymmetrical bolster is ground out more on the right side to provide proper finger placement and an easy, secure grip. The knives balance perfectly, with the pivot point just ahead of where the handle sweeps out of the blade.

The black PakkaWood® handles provide the beauty of genuine wood, but—since the wood is impregnated with a waterproof resin—the handles are as durable as plastic and dishwasher safe, too.
