Tsunehisa Damascus has a beautiful blade in stainless AUS-10 Damascus. It has been polished to a mirror finish to give the 32 steel layers maximum contrast. The blade is very thin and the balance point is neutral. It’s a light knife that feels very nimble. We highly recommend this knife!
Naikiri: The edge of this shape is almost flat for the entire length and is the consummate knife for the preparation of vegetables. The wide rectangular blade is ideal for scooping and the best shape for vertical chopping of hard and dense foods like cabbages, celeriac etc. Function – Vegetable knife. For Slicing, Dicing and Mincing of vegetables. Normal length – 160mm to 180mm Tip: A few models have a completely flat edge with no curve so if you need to roll cut as well as vertically chop (to Julienne or Chiffonade herbs) select a model that has a slight curve towards the tip. This is the ‘uber’ knife for vegetables.
