Knife Description:
 
The Shun Premier Collection is distinguished by hand-hammered blades and walnut-colored PakkaWood handles that evoke the artistry of traditional hand-forged knives of old times.
 
The Japanese Nakiri Knife is is ideal for cleaning and chopping up herbs and vegetables, but is not suitable for chopping bones, despite its shape.  Not often found in Western kitchens, the Nakiri’s flat blade is made for the efficient chopping of vegetables using a push/pull cutting style. The almost flat Blade contacts the cutting board all at once, minimizing the chance of accordion cutting. 
 
Made of VG10 Stainless Steel, clad with 16 Layers on either side of Stainless Steel Damascus Blade, then beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision. Where the steels meet, a wavy line called a hamon is formed -- similar to the line formed when samurai swords are tempered using a clay-baking technique.
 
The striking Hammered Finish - "Tsuchime" in Japanese - acts as a series of hollow-ground cavities, reducing drag and quickly releasing food from the blade so that it will not stick.
 
The Walnut Pakkawood Handle is infused with a water-resistant resin and contours to nestle comfortably in the hand, and the Shun Logo embossed on the bottom adds balance and beauty to the knife, whether in the hand or at rest in the block.
 
Hand crafted in Japan, this Shun Premier Knife reflects the craftsmanship of a centuries-old tradition of Japanese knifemaking, with an eye towards the latest innovations in cutlery design.

This classical and unique Japanese Nakiri Knife is delivered in an attractive Cardboard Gift Box.
