Summary

Good for compact hands and smaller chopping tasks, this professional knife is a true champion. Shaped like a slender cleaver, it performs impeccably on everything from summer tomatoes to zucchini.

  • Slender cleaver-shaped blade is designed to slice and chop, then scoop foods into your soup pot or salad bowl.
  • Knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion.
  • Heavy razor-sharp blade is designed for both heavy-duty and precision cutting.
  • Wüsthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) ensures a 20% sharper blade with twice the edge retention.
  • Oval hollow-ground indentations on blade edge help keep ingredients from sticking.
  • Full tang is triple riveted to the handle for exceptional durability.
  • Polypropylene handle is contoured for a comfortable grip.
Dimensions & More Info
  • 5"-long blade.
  • 4 1/2"-long handle.
  • 8 oz.
  • Made in Germany.
Use & Care

Use

  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

Care

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
  • Maintain the knife's cutting edge by regularly using a honing steel.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing, you should not need to sharpen your knife more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this knife The knife is a very good buy. Its the best knife I have ever purchased. I agree with the other reviews about the size, its really very handy to hold and use. Beware its razor sharp, watch those fingers. Works extremely well for dicing, chopping and slicing veggies. You can get very thin slicing of veggies with this. I use it a lot for cutting cheese blocks too, works extremely well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Knife Ever I've had this knife for several weeks and it's the best knife ever. It is as sharp as a razor and so easy to use. The size is perfect and this is the sharpest, best, knife I have ever owned. I reordered a second one today, I use it daily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow it is a great knife I received this today along with a Wusthof 25 slot block, and immediately I put it to work. I cut up four different vegetables and I loved the feel in my hand, and I think I like it better than my 5-7" Santoku's. Nice knife so take advantage of the sale, I am sure you will love it. I had the larger one in my hand at a WS store and I didn't like the feel as much as this 5" Nakiri.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Knife Excels! I've been using this knife for a couple of weeks now and it's truly exceptional! As with all Wusthof Knives, it's sharp as a razor and this one, in particular, is exceptional for dicing and chopping veggies. Becaus of its size, it is easier to control. Just remember to keep your fingers (holding the veggies) curled and tucked away from the blade. I haven't used it long enough to have anything meaningful to say about durability and strength.
