About Nakiri Knives

Nakiri are traditional Japanese style knives that are used for chopping and mincing vegetables and fruit. You might mistake the Nakiri for a meat cleaver with its thin rectangular blade. While they may look the same and while they are both chopping knives, the meat cleaver is obviously for meat while the Nakiri is for vegetables. It is a lightweight knife and is therefore not suitable for heavy duty chopping.

Unlike many knives, including the cleaver, the Nakiri blade is much thinner than knives that are designed to chop meat and bones. The thin blade means that you slice through the vegetables rather than potentially breaking the vegetables which can happen with a thicker blade.

    Care Instructions

    Care and Use Instructions

    • Suitable for use on fruit and vegetables, but can be used on fish and meats also.
    • Do not use on frozen foods or bones.
    • Only use natural wood or plastic cutting boards. Never use stone, glass or other rigid cutting surfaces.
    • Hand wash with warm soapy water, rinse clean and dry after each use.
    • Avoid prolonged immersion in liquids (water, solvents, etc).
    • Do not clean in the dishwasher.
    • Sharpen using a whetstone or a quality knife sharpener.
    • Store your knife in a dry place.
    • We recommend you always apply a small amount of oil after each use. We recommend Tsubaki oil (Japanese Camellia Oil) which has been used for centuries by Japanese knife makers to protect all types of steel.
    • As a minimum, wipe the blade with oil, 3 to 4 times a year to stop rust forming (more often if near water).
