A true Chinese cleaver similar to the ones seen in Asian markets designed with a high blade to leave clearance for your knuckles a large handle for comfort and a nice blade grind to offer a combination of durability and performance.

Offering the look of a Cleaver, it is considered as a Nakiri due to it's razor-sharp blade which is more brittle and not designed to cut through bones and other solid.

Nakiri knives are highly known for their long and flat blade. They tend to be fabricated with a higher heel compared to other models and are extremely popular for chopping vegetables. They are the ideal candidate for cutting long veggies in a single chop, but also great for a push or pull cut into harder vegetables. The square shape allows you to easily grip your fingers around the handle with no fear of busting your knuckles when chopping your vegetables.

Many chefs that regularly work with vegetables and fruits consider their Nakiri a primary knife in the kitchen.
