Ohishi SLD Migaki Tsuchime Nakiri 165mm
Opening the packaging of the Ohishi SLD 165mm Nakiri (Vegetable) Japanese kitchen knife with its Miaki (polished) and Tsuchime (hammered) finish you know you have a true work of the Blacksmith's art.
Only weighing 166 gms, this well-balanced Nakiri (vegetable) knife can be rinsed and used straight from the box. It has a fine edge that will handle all your vegetable prep with ease and the hammered finish helps the larger slices of vegetables to fall away from the knife.
Even though the Nakiri is known as a vegetable knife I find that I use my own Nakiri for all the meal prep and it handles it all without a problem.
