Details

160mm -The Nakiri may for all the world look like a small cleaver but it is an accurate blade, in fact, more a precision instrument. Whilst fans of British TV cookery shows may observe chefs confidently applying the Nakiri to a multitude of meat and fish ingredients this would be totally anathema to the Japanese, who reserve these slim fine edge blades for things like getting thin rolls of Daikon which are then minced to absolutely delicate angel hair vermicelli. Home cooks and Japanese chefs use the Nakiri to make powder of various herbs as well as transform onion or garlic with incredible efficiency into fine rings or fabulously even, meltingly small, diced pieces. The rounded tip can be guided with relative ease against the top of the fingers to cut along the ridges of halved fruit and vegetables. Actually, this shape truly lends itself to the process of properly cutting an onion from the halving all the way through to following the lines and then mincing. As for tears with an onion, as with all well made Japanese knives, there is no way the user could possibly be reduced tears unless they have allowed the edge to dull after a lot of heavy use. The Nakiri is the easiest blade to 'strop' sharp as the straight profile allows the edge to be swept across the newspaper or leather in one movement. So, regularly sweeping edge on each side on newspaper five to 10 times should keep your Hasegawa nakiri keenly sharp.
