Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The perfect knife for effortlessly chopping vegetables, the Wasabi Black Nakiri knife will made quick work of all your vegetable prep. Many of the Wasabi line of knives are made in the traditional Japanese blade styling (such as the Nakiri, Deba, and Yanigiba shapes). Each knife features unsurpassed cutting performance due to the Daido 1K6 high-carbon, stainless which maintains superior edge retention. Although it has a traditional blade-style (shape), it is paired with a uniquely modern handle material, polypropylene blended with bamboo powder, and impregnated with an antibacterial agent for super clean food preparation.

I used this knife professionally for 3 years until I lost it recently and I am buying another! I've seen it crash to the floor during many busy dinner rushes and it never took any damage (strength of a Global without the cost). The nakiri style is great for tight spaces or cramped cutting boards (its hard to stab yourself with it! :) Two other people I work with both bought this knife after using mine. Also, the handle is great for either hand and I like its antimicrobial properties.

Just to put it simply, we have a lot of knives from a very wide price range.
This is the knife I ALWAYS grab for general usage. I prefer it to knives we have that cost 10x as much.
Thin blade, perfect shape and light weight.

NOT a chopper, not a heavy knife for butchery, but a great general usage veggie knife for the price.

This knife is my perfect veggie prep knife. I've been going through different styles (santoku, nakiri, Chinese cleavers, etc.) and have always had some beef with the various designs. Whether too small, too dull, too wide or just not comfortable, this knife beats them all.

First, it's long enough. I have a nakiri that's an inch shorter and the Wasabi is perfect. It's also wide enough. A smaller blade is usually skinnier too and I love the width of the Wasabi. Not too wide as Chinese cleavers can be (though I still use a cleaver for large, rough cuts for veggie prep). Lastly, this blade is nice and sharp. It glides through every chunk of veg I have thrown at it.

Fit and finish is awesome and I really enjoy how it feels in the hand. I'll definitely be purchasing other varieties of the Wasabi line in the future. It's the perfect balance of features for the money that I have seen. I highly recommend.

A very economical nakiri. Out of the box it wasn't very sharp. One section of the blade was sharp enough to cut a tomato well, but the rest was not, very inconsistent. For the money though it works pretty well and feels ok in the hand. In general, if you can, save up and buy a real Shun or similar higher quality product. Ultimately value is better.

This knife was worth every penny! I'm a kitchen manager at a natural foods store. In other words, I cut a lot of vegetables. This knife replaced my MAC Nakiri knife that needed to be retired to my home kitchen. I've probably already put dozens of hours of use on this new knife, and it's holding up very well. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because it's a little cheesy looking with it's plastic handle and "wasabi" symbol/word written on the blade. Function over fashion in this case.

A well received gift for my chef daughter in law and son. They love it. She has uses Henckels at work and likes this just as much. Excellent for chopping and scooping veggies and fruits. Great value for the money. I have the Wusthof Classic nakiri. I prefer it slightly - but not three times the price type difference. On a 1 to 10, if the wusthof is a 10 then this is an 8.5.

I had got one of these knives as part of a cheap sushi set. I found I used the cheap version all the time and it soon became my favorite knife for vegetables. So I thought I would look for a better quality one and this was it. I love this knife. I also love shun knives.

This knife has become my wife's go-to knife for meal prep. Usually you just have one protein for a meal, but you often use several vegetables, especially the onion(s) and garlic(s), maybe celery and peppers, and all of these (except big winter squashes) are easily prepped with the Wasabi 6716N Black Nakiri Knife, 6-1/2-Inch. We grew 19 tomato plants this year, about half of them various heirloom "paste" tomatoes. this knife is the favorite for breaking down the tomatoes for canning or freezing.

The Wasabi 6716N Black Nakiri Knife, 6-1/2-Inch is easy to sharpen with an F. Dick 10" steel and the occasional use of an 8" Chicago Cutlery ceramic hone.

This knife isn't the best choice for meats, fish, or cheeses, but for all fruits and vegetables, except hard winter squashes and pumpkins, you will really like using this knife.
