Description: The nakiri is a traditional Japanese knife, ideal for chopping fruit and vegetables. The edge is double-beveled, like a Western knife. Though sometimes called a vegetable cleaver, the thin edge geometry makes it a precision tool, rather than a Japanese equivalent to a meat cleaver.
The elements of ceramic are formed in nature through thousands of years of crystallization, extreme temperatures, and literally tons of pressure. The result is a material that is close to diamond in harness, 50% harder than steel. Over the past four decades, Kyocera's unrelenting creativity has replicated this natural process, producing the finest ceramic in the world.
The unrelenting strength, unparalleled purity, and ultra-light weight of Advanced Ceramic Cutlery leave you breathless. Fruits, vegetables, and boneless meats surrender to its elegant power. Its beauty and performance are enhanced by its ease of care, chemical purity, and versatility.
