Usually underutilized in the western kitchen, a Nakiri knife is used primarily for chopping, slicing, and mincing vegetables. Their straight blade edge is perfect for cutting long veggies in a single chop. Also, the added weight of the blade allows it to fall through food more easily while you chop.
Nakiri is considered to be a useful knife to cut without splitting or cracking relatively hard vegetables. Usually used as a vegetable chopping knife, Nakiri knife is very popular among vegetarians.
Note: Knives are hand forged and each handle vary in color/pattern & design. The white pattern on the buffalo horn is a natural occurrence in the material.
