DescriptionDetailsBonus GiftsReviewsQ & ARecipes
The 5 1/2" Shun Premier Nakiri Knife is meticulously handcrafted in Japan with an ultra-sharp blade for precision chopping, slicing and dicing of vegetables and fruits. In Japanese, Nakiri means "vegetable knife" and the Shun Nakiri with its strong, straight edge is ideal for vegetables, produce and even delicate herbs. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX "super steel" to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding with 68 outer layers (34 per side) supports the core and provides additional food release and stain resistance. The hammered tsuchime finish features a textured pattern that reduces drag and prevents foods from sticking to the blade. The walnut PakkaWood handle is infused with a water-resistant resin and contours to comfortably nestle in the hand. Beautiful, stain- and rust-resistant Shun knives take at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete and resemble hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. Elegantly boxed for gift giving.

Shun (pronounced: Shoon) is Japanese for "at the peak of perfection." The Shun brand, made by the Kai Corporation, one of Japan's preeminent blade manufacturers introduced its exquisitely styled and exceptionally sharp Japanese-style knives to American kitchens in 2002. Compared to European and Western knives, Shun knives have lighter, thinner blades made of harder steel and honed to superior sharpness. Shun Premier knives reflect the Shun's renowned craftsmanship and centuries-old Japanese knife making traditions.
