The Nakiri may for all the world look like a small cleaver but it is a far more accurate blade, in fact more a precision instrument. Whilst fans of British TV cookery 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 thin fine edge blades for things like getting thin rolls of Daikon which are then minced to absolutely delicate angel hair vermicelli. Japanese chefs and home cooks 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. 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. The rounded tip can be guided with relative safety against the finger tips to cut along ridges of halved fruit or vegetable; and 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 without the requisite polishing.
