Rated 5 out of 5 by SanDiegoCooks from Great Knife! I first bought this knife for my niece who wrote me to say how incredibly sharp it is and what a pleasure it is to use. I chose to buy her a Wusthof because that company has long been my favorite knife maker. Their knives are consistently sharp, well balanced and easy to maintain. Having been cooking for a long time and already owning enough knives to outfit a pirate ship, I probably didn't need another knive myself, but influenced by my niece's pleasure with the Nakiri, I bought one for our kitchen too. It has now become a "go to" knife in this house. It cuts as easily and well as an expensive Japanese knife that I have, but it feels so much less fragile than that knife. It glides through vegetables and feels secure in the hand. I prefer it over my Wusthof Santoku because the squared edge tip is surprisingly maneuverable to make a quick trim as you go about slicing. Enough said, it's a great tool!Date published: 2016-08-17Rated 5 out of 5 by momba from Love this knife I love this knife. It is perfect for cutting vegetables, meat, or anything you want to cut or chop. I am very happy I purchased this knife it is an asset to any kitchen.Date published: 2016-03-18Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristiSC from My other "go to" knife This knife is excellent: well-balanced and perfect for dicing/slicing. It is a toss-up between my Wusthof 6" Chef's Knife or the Wusthof Classic Nakiri Knife. Love them both. I particularly like the Nakiri for slicing/chopping celery, carrots and other dense vegetables. Excellent addition to your knife drawer.Date published: 2016-01-31Rated 5 out of 5 by Lexxx from Favorite Everyday Knife I received this knife as a gift a few months ago. I use it almost every day, to chop a ridiculous amount of produce that ranges in size and starch. As someone that eats a mostly vegetarian diet, I've gotten many hours of use out this knife. I use it on peppers, tomatoes, garlic, shallots, scallions, red onions, ginger, mushrooms, avocados, zucchini, potatoes and other root vegetables, and a variety of fruit. It's been a pleasure to use, and chops through nearly anything with ease. I also have the Shun Fuji Santoku and Chef knives, but this one sees the most use, as the price isn't nearly as intimidating to an amateur cook. I would definitely purchase again.Date published: 2015-06-19Rated 5 out of 5 by kittyb from Useful everyday knife! I added this knife to my new collection of knives! So glad I did. I use it every day. I saw it on a Food Network show "Pioneer Woman" & was curious. I have a Santuko knife that has a pointed edge whereas this Nakiri knife has a straight edge which I feel gives you better handling/control.Date published: 2014-11-27Rated 5 out of 5 by LMorales from Perfect cut High quality and super sharp knife. Ideal for thin and perfect slices, I love how easily cuts mushrooms and other vegetables. I will surely recommend it to others.Date published: 2014-10-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Shell57 from New favorite toy I have been eyeing this knife for about 6 months. I've only had it a day and it is already going to be my favorite knife. It is absolutely perfect for chopping, dicing and prepping vegetables and fruits. It has the most perfect sharp edge for thin slices and small dice. Well worth the money I paid for it. The sales clerk also gave me helpful hints for sharpening the blade after using.Date published: 2014-07-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Susiegal from Love it; use it for cutting many things! Received this 7" as Christmas gift and it is everything & more that I like. Like its length when I am cutting/chopping vegetables & fruits; allows me to put pressure on the entire knife length to cut through items. Have RA so it is such a wonderful addition to my knife block. Have not used my chef knife since I received this. It cuts directly down and slices at an angle with equal ease. Used it to mince an onion and it gave me the finest of mince without turning the onion into a paste! Highly recommend.Date published: 2014-01-12
