The Shun Classic 6.5 inch Nakiri knife is an especially sharp, beautiful knife made specifically for chopping vegetables. Carrot and cucumber slices won't stick to the blade of this nakiri knife. The layered, Damascus-like finish on the blade reduces sticking. This Shun nakiri knife also features a comfortable handle made from black PakkaWood, a combination of white birch and resin. Backed by a lifetime guarantee from Shun.
