Famous for their edge retention and sharpening ease, each Shun Classic knife has an inner core of VG-Max"super-steel" which includes additional carbon and chromium to improve strength, durability, wear, corrosion. Then each blade is clad with 16 layers of stainless Damascus on each side. The resulting pattern is called suminigashi or "ink pattern" after a traditional Japanese paper-decorating technique. While the patterned layers enhance the knife's beautify, they also add durability and stain resistance, and reduce friction when cutting. The handle is made of PakkaWood which is resin-impregnated natural wood.

The Nakiri Vegetable Knife resembles a narrow cleaver and is designed specifically for the slicing and chopping of vegetables. It's blade is an ample 6.5-in., a perfect length without being too unwieldy.

    • excellent knife

      As with all Shun cutlery, this is well made and finely balanced. I had to adjust my technique a bit because this cleaver shape doesn't rock like a chef's knife. A very useful tool in my kitchen.

      I recommend this product.

    • Excellent knife -- as you would expect

      I've been adding to my wife's basic set of Shun Classic kinves over the past couple of years. Each new one was initially greated with "Why do I need another knife?" But each one has its place and each one perfoms beautifully. The nakiri was the most recent addition and it has become a regular, especially since we've adopted a more vegetarian diet and this knife is great for chopping coarser vegetables. The only drawback is that is is a bit heavy for prolonged use. I'm sure we will get accustomed to that the more we use it. All the Shun knives are great -- expensive, but well worth it.

      I recommend this product.

    • Beautifully crafted. Super sharp and a dream to use. We have a drawer of good knives and this one is one of the go-to favorites. Nothing does as well on vegetables. I would purchase more Shun knives, based on this experience.
