7" Vintage Nakiri Knife with Kullenschliff (Hollow) Edge
Lamson is one of America's oldest cutlery companies. Based in Massachusetts, this almost 200-year-old company is dedicated to producing the highest quality products for chefs and culinary enthusiasts. Every Lamson product comes with a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects.
The Nakiri is a Japanese-style general-purpose kitchen knife similar to a Santoku knife, but with a heavier and thicker blade, resulting in a standard chopping motion versus a rocking motion. It performs well at slicing, dicing, and mincing. Because the blade tip is not sharp, it's safer to use than most kitchen knives. The Kullenschliff (K) edge, also known as a Granton or Hollow-Edge, is designed to create an air pocket between the food and the blade, helping to prevent sticking.
Manufactured with top-quality American steel, Lamson's Vintage Collection features an ergonomically friendly and hand-finished oval walnut handle with brass rivets for a timeless look and feel. Blades are formed from proprietary high-carbon USA-made stainless steel (Grade 420HC-LAM) and are precision laser cut and tempered to a hardness of 58 on the Rockwell scale. This results in a hard, wickedly sharp blade that retains an edge for longer and is both highly corrosion resistant and elastic.
