The Wasabi Black Series can trace its origins to Japanese communal kitchens. Thanks to a successful combination of enduring functionality and sharpness, robust material quality, and a minimalistic design, the numerous blades of the series are intended for uncomplicated and continuous use and convince with an impressive price-to-performance ratio. Lastly, the series owes its easy-care handling to the water-resistant plastic handle - the pleasant feel of which has been achieved through the addition of bamboo powder. The matte black handle and highly-polish stainless steel blade fashioned from 1K6 steel are permanently moulded together, ruling out the accumulation of dirt.
The Nakiri knife is a Japanese style vegetable knife that looks like a smaller and slimmer version of a meat cleaver. Featuring a large rectangular shape with a very sharp edge; the Nakiri blade is the best tool for cutting large vegetables such as aubergine, squash and pumpkin.
Nakiri knives have fluted edges which prevents vegetables from getting stuck onto the blade during chopping. As the blade chops, the fluted edges trap air between the knife and the vegetables, preventing any sticking as the blade is slicing and dicing.
