ZWILLING J.A. Henckels Pro 6.5" Nakiri Knife
+ $ shipping surcharge
Nakiri knives are a Japanese style originally intended for slicing vegetables—Zwilling Pro’s version does that, plus breaks down poultry, finely chops herbs, and minces with the best of them. Its thin, straight blade ensures a clean cut. A smooth, contoured resin handle keeps your hand comfortable while you do your best iron chef impression. The wide, cleaver-like blade helps you easily scoop your mise en place into a waiting pan (just be sure to use the blunt side, as to not dull the blade). And the hollows along the blade don’t just make for a pretty pattern—they minimize sticking while you cut!
