Nakiri (nah-key-ree)

The vegetable slaughterer. There is no western equivalent to the nakiri. Shaped like a short rectangle, most nakiris fall at either 165mm or 180mm blade length. If you’ve got a long list of veg prep, this shall be your steed. It’s not that other knives are incapable of cutting vegetables, it’s that a nakiri will do more easily and potentially better.
