Kai Shun Premier Nakiri  14cm

Kai Shun Premier Nakiri 14cm


A precision-minded Japanese nakiri knife with a textured blade that improves performance and durability. Part of the chef-designed Kai Shun Premier series, which is equally suitable for left- and right-handed users.


Renowned Japanese knifemakers Kai Shun teamed up with German chef Tim Mälzer to create the Kai Shun Premier range, featuring multi-textured steel blades that are both hard and flexible at once, plus symmetrical wooden handles that are suitable for both left- and right-handed cooks. In this series, every blade's back down to its middle has been hand-hammered 
to create an effect known as ‘tsuchime’; in addition to looking beautiful, these air pockets prevent food from sticking to the knife as you prep. The core of hard VG MAX steel is surrounded by 32 layers of Damascus steel and forged in a steep, tapered V-shape that provides incredible durability, sharpness, and edge retention. A continuous tang in the handle ensures stability and balance when cutting, and the overall lightness of the knife makes it a joy to use.


After each use, wash your knife under running water and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth; do not use harsh detergents and do not allow knives to sit in water; oil the handle time to time.


Blade: VG Max steel (61 ± 1HRC) enveloped in 32 layers of Damascus steel; handle: pakkawood
