ZWILLING Pro 6.5-inch Nakiri Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 132.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chopper The Nakiri is an Asian style blade designed to chop like a cleaver but with much less weight. Although it's perfectly designed for the chopping cutting motion, it is easy to rock as well. Extremely versatile; a favorite of my sons who love to cook. Pro knives showcase the best innovation in kitchen knives, the curved bolster. The curved bolster allows you to grip the knife correctly with little thought. This pinch grip helps eliminate fatigue in your hand when cutting for long periods of time. They are forged from high carbon German steel in Germany. They will be extremely sharp, stay sharp, will be comfortable and durable. Guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Rockwell hardness knife but... Great Rockwell hardness knife but the strange cut of the tang didn't let it fit the block of guy pro S knives. The end of the handle wasn't smooth with the metal tang and plastic like the pro S ones are. The metal protruded and its sharp so it catches you hand. Contacting Zwilling. Else the knife is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So pleased with Nakiri Pro Love the shape of the blade and the feel of this knife in my hand. It is fantastic for cutting and chopping vegetables, much better than my conventional shaped knives. The blade is thick all the way across the top and this gives great strength when cutting through thicker vegetables like squash. I do slightly miss more pointed knife tips that can get into narrower spaces, like broccoli florettes, but this knife is a wonderful addition to my kitchen and will be my go to knife from now on. Exceptional quality goes without saying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Undecided at first, but love the Nakiri Knife I was very undecided when I first saw this knife. But kept coming back to look again and again. I wasn't sure what I'd use it for as I have a number of great knifes that I use to chop vegetables. When I finally decided to go for it I found it to be on back order. So I requested a notice when the knife came back into stock. It was well worth the wait. I use it now most every day to prepare salads, chop vegetables, and cut paper thin veggies for soups, sautés and just about any other need I may have for chopping. I really like how it handles carrots. This is not a cleaver but does great for thinly slicing meats for Chinese dishes. It is a bit longer than I had imagined, so visually it took some getting used to. It is sturdy and super sharp too. I am very pleased with this purchase, and recommend this to all my friends that enjoy cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta love this chopping knife! This is a perfect marriage of the quality and design. A nakiri should be sturdy, stable and the Pro line steel is just that. This high quality, German, stainless steel blade will hold up for a lifetime. And requires little maintenance, just weekly honing (see the 2-stage sharpeners if you are timid about honing) and at most, an annual sharpening. It has an angled bolster, a new design features that matches the grip of professional chef's. It keeps the thumb and forefinger in the correct position for maximum control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vegetable knife This is my first time using this style of knife. I purchased based on the great reviews from others and it did not disappoint! Feels secure in my hand and is fun to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow I really love this knife! Originally purchased as a vegetable knife but I've come to rely on it for just about everything. I find I don't use the tip of the chef's knife that often, and appreciate the way the Nakari can also be used to scoop and transport foods. Nice weight and well balanced, the Pro also boasts a curved bolster and curved blade, which adds comfort, as well as outstanding performance. The knife's versatility is a welcomed surprise, and I really enjoy using it daily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great combo blade I have wanted a Nakiri knife but I do not like the typical D shaped handle you find on them. I was already a fan of the Zwilling Pro line and was very excited when they added a Nakiri option. The German forged blade is super strong and easy to maintain like all Pro blades. The acute angle of the blade gives nice thin straight slices and chops. I love that it still has the curved bolster like the rest of the line for optimal comfort and encouragement of the proper holding of the knife.

Just received this beautiful knife. On my zwilling 4 stage knife sharpener, should I use the Asian side to hone/sharpen this knife (10 degrees)? Or the standard side (15 degrees)? Thank you.
