Product Info

The Wasabi Black series of knives have a specially designed handle which fuses the hygienic properties of bamboo with the long-lasting qualities of polypropylene. The handle also hugs the blade, reducing the gaps and crevices that dirt can gather in.

The Nakiri is a traditional Japanese vegetable cleaver, which is ideal for chopping greens and a variety of other vegetables.

  • Features traditional Japanese blade styling, where the blade is sharpened on a single side for superior cutting performance and to reduce food sticking
  • Made from high carbon stainless steel
  • Blade is bead-blasted to achieve a smooth finish and embellished with the Japanese characters for 'wasabi'
  • The blade is closely connected to the handle, not allowing dirt to settle in any gaps

For over 100 years, KAI has pushed the boundaries of aesthetic design, technical innovation and outstanding quality, enjoying cult status in Japan.
