The Classic Ikon Nakiri Knife from Wusthof combines the features of a chef's knife with the versatility of a vegetable cleaver. The hollow-edge blade, angled on both sides for slicing and chopping, is 30 percent sharper and holds its edge 30 percent longer than ordinary Asian-style blades. The no-stick hollow edge makes a cut that forms air pockets, allowing food to release easier from the blade. Meats will cut deli-thin for sandwiches, or for stir-frying. When it comes to chopping, slicing and mincing fresh produce, this professional knife is a true champion. Shaped like a slender cleaver, it performs impeccably on everything from summer tomatoes to winter squashes.
