Easy for vegetable prep
Just started using Shun Classic Nakiri and very impressed with how it performs. The 6-1/2 inch blade slices all through an entire celery bulb in one strike.. I made cold Gastpacho soup this past humid weekend just to have another reason to chop and dice with the nakkiri. This knife did not disappoint ....Move over santoku!
