This Zwilling Pro Nakiri with its 17 cm blade, is perfect when finely cutting vegetables and fruit. With the high blade you basically 'stack' the cut slices of fruit or vegetables against the blade.
About the Zwilling Pro collection
The kitchen knives from the Pro collection are enhanced with a blade that was forged from one piece of steel. The full tang blade seamlessly merges with the plastic handle. The handle is secured with three rivets. The transition between the handle and steel is seamless. No dirt can accumulate in between. These knives are enhanced with a classic design and appeal to those who prefer heavier knives.
The blade is made from ice-hardened Friodur steel. During this process the steel is heated in 4 stages to 1000°C and cooled to-70 °C. Zwilling perfected this technique, and guarantees optimum sharpness, sustainability, elasticity and corrosion resistance. The result is a perfectly sharpened knife. Sharpening is easy: the crop of the knife does not extend to the edge of the blade to make sure you can easily sharpen it on a sharpening stone.
Thanks to the seamless construction and the materials used, knives from the Zwilling Pro collection are dishwasher proof. We do, however, recommend washing them by hand because the detergent in a dishwasher can affect the knives in the long run.
