The history of the nakiri (菜切) knife dates back to approximately the 17th century Edo period. Its distinctive feature is its straight blade, which makes it perfect for precise cuts on all kinds of vegetables. The word "nakiri" literally means "vegetable cutter" in Japanese, and the design of the knife reflects this purpose. The blade is generally thinner than other Japanese knives, allowing for fine slicing without crushing or crushing vegetables. The straight edge also allows for push cutting, a common technique in Japanese cuisine where clean cuts are made by pushing the knife straight down. The exact origin of the nakiri knife is unknown, but it is believed to have evolved from other Japanese vegetable knives such as the usuba and deba. Nakiri knives grew in popularity during the Edo period, when the demand for plant-based diets increased the demand for specialized vegetable knives.
