Japanese chef knives are brittle and are designed for cutting soft tissue foods. Carbon steel chef knives can rust if not kept dry.

A nakiri is a Japanese-style vegetable knife sure to attract your attention due to its elegant and interesting shape. Yet this blade shape is quite practical, too. With its blunt tip, the Shun Premier Blonde Nakiri is safer to use in the kitchen, but without sacrificing any of the slicing and dicing power you need when processing vegetables and other foods. Because of its straight blade, edge, and spine, the nakiri isn't rocked like a chef's knife. Instead, use a push cut by moving the knife down and forward while keeping the edge parallel to the cutting surface. If you cut vegetables for salad or stir-fry, you will simply love using the Shun Premier Blonde Nakiri.
