The squarish profile guides the cutting edge keeps your cuts straight through large vegetables such as eggplant or potatoes. Bonus feature, Nakiris act as a great scooper for your prep.

Care information

The cutting edge is Carbon Steel, so it will rust if not maintained.

Clean with a soft towel and thouroughly dry after use.

Rinse with water or sanitzier after cutting acidic foods such as citrus, tomatoes, or fruit. The acid will discolor the metal.

The handle is of natural wood and should be treating with some consideration.

I recommend Tsubaki Oil to be used with the Blade and Wood, Mineral Oil is an alternative.

Never place in the dishwasher.
