Resembling a small cleaver, the traditional Japanese Nakiri are double beveled knives designed specifically for working with vegetables. Unlike a cleaver, the Nakiri is extremely sharp and thin, providing you with smooth, clean, precise chops and cuts. The Damascus Nakiri's squared-off tip, and tall, flat, broad side is also great at crushing foods such as garlic, and its amazingly sharp blade effortlessly chops all the way down to the cutting board, without the need for pulling or pushing.
