One big ole vegetable knife coming at ya. While it is much larger than most nakiri, it still is very light, weighing only 6.4oz. Besides, who said modesty is a virtue in the kitchen? This knife is made from 1/16” stock, so it is a very thin blade that will tackle and vegetable and herb work you put in front of it. The handle is a right-handed D-shape wa made from Gabon Ebony and Bradford Pear.
