Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable & Light! Nakiri knife have the same feature of a 7" vegetable cleaver knife, it is about the same size but not as wide and not daunting. Though it has a slightly narrower blade, its purpose is the same. This knife has a comfortable handle encourages cutting with improved precision, safety and comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Four Star knives have one of my favorite handles because they are molded to provide a super comfortable non slip grip. The Nakiri knife profile is similar to a butcher knife in that it has a broader blade that allows you to make heavy cuts. Both have the squared off tip and a straight blade that allow you to cut all the way through to the board without a push pull horizontal motion. This is great for cutting vegetable because of the super sharp edge and the single motion your vegetables are being sliced and not split or broken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chopping made easy My sons love the Nakiri because they both love the chopping motion. It's a great knife to add to a collection because very few sets include it. Perfect for chopping carrots, celery and garlic, plus so much more. Four Star is made in Germany, forged from high carbon German steel and is guaranteed to last a lifetime just like the Pro knife. Its fine edge is razor sharp and will have amazing edge retention. The molded handle is the perfect solution for someone who prefers a lighter knife but doesn't want to sacrifice quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Japanese Chopping Knife The nakiri is one of my favorite shapes. It is a traditional knife in Japanese cooking; there isn't much that cannot be done with it. Asian cooking involves a fair amount of prepping - pre-cutting of vegetables and proteins. This knife is a workhorse. Soft vegs or hard, thin slices or cubes of meat or chicken, this knife does it all. There’s a reason the Four Star line has been a part of Zwilling’s lineup forever. It was designed with professionals in mind, so the focus was on safety, comfort and durability. The ‘grippy’ polypropylene handle is proportionate to the blade and the work - therefore no excess weight. The blade steel and method of construction is proprietary and at the forefront of technology. The blade can both take a beating and hold an edge, ideal for daily use and hard work. Although dishwasher safe, all knives perform and look better if they are hand washed. I’ve had a Four Star in my collection for decades. And it still looks almost new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and true An excellent Nakiri blade from a tried and true 4 star brand. It appears and works as a slimmed down cleaver. Excellent for chopping lots of vegetables and herbs. The blade is strong, sharp and durable. Well balanced with a nice smooth and comfortable handle. Prep your stir frys with this knife.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zwilling Employee A Nakiri has a flat cutting edge to provide the best blade to surface contact area. This knife allows for larger piles of food to be chopped. The slight curve on the end of the Four Star version gives the ability to rock the blade slightly to achieve the desired results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love 4Star knives I’ve been using 4 star knives since I received some for my wedding over 30 years ago. Their excellent customer service (if you have a problem) is what brings me back to purchase the newer style knives. I love them. They cut through even the most dense vegetables and tough cuts of meat so easily, and I enjoy having the different styles and sizes to pick the appropriate knife instead of struggling with the wrong knife, especially as my hands get older. Don’t hesitate buying from this company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nakiri knives are a cross between a santoku and a vegetable cleaver. Used with the chopping motion Nakiri's will cut through the toughest squash yet thinly slice a delicate cucumber. The Four Star line of knives has a really nice feeling handle. Is easy to grip even when wet and works with smaller hands. Premium German Steel, made in Germany, ice hardened to hold an edge longer these knives are ready to take on the toughest challenges in the kitchen.
