Adding Eastern Knives to Your Collection
Adding Eastern knives to your kitchen can make you a better home chef in no time. Most people select two specific styles of Eastern cutlery--the santoku and the nakiri.
- The santoku knife is similar to the chef's or utility knife. These blades can be used across many ingredients for every meal of the day.
- The nakiri looks similar to a meat cleaver with a rectangular blade and sturdy handle. This is a more compact and graceful take on a cleaver. It's made for veggies, especially tough root vegetables, or certain cuts of meat.
- One of the main reasons to add Eastern knives to your collection, even if you normally skew towards European crafted knives, is that the blades are angled differently.
- Your Wusthof nakiri knife features a double beveled blade, refined to an incredibly sharp angle, in order to give you perfect, even slices when you use it in a rhythmic, measured fashion.
What You Can Do with Your Nakiri
The nakiri can become an everyday knife in your home, too. These blades handle an incredibly versatile range of tasks that make experimenting with new techniques or recipes really satisfying.
- Use the entire blade of your nakiri knife. While a chef's knife is used mostly at the tip or via a rocking motion, the nakiri is a whole-blade experience. Give it a good chop to get through veggies and more.
- Mince herbs, garlic and ginger quickly and perfectly with a Wusthof nakiri. Go with the same chopping motion to really release the aromas and flavors.
- Tenderize meat with the back side of your blade. Then, use the blade to cut crosswise, lengthwise or into medallions.
Shop The Wusthof Classic Nakiri Knife and Other Blades
Wusthof brings its exceptional reputation to their Japanese-inspired knives. The cutlery has been run by the same family for seven generations from a town called Solingen in Germany, known fondly as The City of Blades.
- Choose a Wusthof Classic nakiri knife to expand your collection of Wusthof Classic cutlery. The line includes several knives you need for basic and specialty tasks.
- For a larger knife, try a nakiri from the Wusthof Classic Ikon range. The arched handle of this knife is a great way to get used to the chopping motion of the nakiri after using Western knives.
