MIYABI 5000FCD Nakiri 17cm (6.7″)
This Japanese nakiri has a hard fine carbide steel core for very good cutting edge retention and sharpness. Nakiri are ideal for juliennes, brunoise and other precision knife cuts for vegetables. Also a great tool for cutting into very hard skinned produce like pumpkins and squash.
The blade core is surrounded by 48 outer layers of steel each rolled on top of each other creating a ‘Flower Damascus’ pattern that has become synonymous with this range.
The cutting edge is Honbazuke-honed and symmetrical (not single bevel), so can be used by those both right and left-handed. There is no finger guard so the whole length of the cutting edge can be used.
The handle and half-bolster join seamlessly for comfortable use. The smooth surface helps to prevent the formation of calluses on the thumb and forefinger.
Hand wash only for best care, and maintain and sharpen using a whetstone. We’d recommend using a wooden chopping board rather than glass, ceramic or stone boards as these will dull the cutting edge.
