Nakiri is a double bevel knife designed specifically for chopping and cutting vegetables and fruit, but also for rock cutting. Nakiris are characterised by their flat profiles and squared off tips. Nakiris are often ground thin to optimise performance, as they benefit from a refined cutting edge. A similar design can be seen at the traditional single bevel Usuba, which is also designed specifically for use on vegetables. Nakiri enthusiasts may also want to consider the Chinese cleaver, which performs a similar function.
