Vintage 7" Nakiri Knife w/ Kullenschliff Edge

The Nakiri is a Japanese-style general-purpose kitchen knife similar to a Santoku knife. The blade of the Nakiri is heavier and thicker than the Santoku, resulting in a standard chopping motion versus a rocking motion. It performs extremely well at slicing, dicing, and mincing. Additionally, the blade tip is not sharp, making it safer to use than many other kitchen knife styles.

A 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. This dynamic design is featured on both the Lamson Nakiri and Santoku. 

Made from Lamson’s proprietary Hi-Carbon American Steel, their full-tang Vintage blades are cut, ground, polished and sharpened in their Massachusetts facilities. Handles of exotic imported hardwoods are assembled to the blades with brass rivets and then the knives are meticulously finished and sharpened. The sleek, tapered handles facilitate both traditional and pinch grips.


  • Signature craftsmanship - Meticulously formed in Lamson's Massachusetts facilities, each of their knives is finished to perfection using state of the art technology coupled with hand finishing as well as proprietary polishing and sharpening processes.
  • Unmatched quality - Blades are formed from proprietary high-carbon USA-made stainless steel (Grade 420HC-LAM). Knives come with sleek and sturdy handles of infused walnut.
  • Durable design - Blades 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.
  • Superior cutting performance - Full tang blades with double brass-riveted handles ensure ideal balance and weight. Lamson's combination machine and hand-sharpening processes ensures a consistently sharp and durable edge.
  • Superior ergonomic handling - A curved and recessed integrated bolster provides a seamless transition from handle to blade, resulting in comfortable thumb and finger support for better control and safety. If you use a traditional or advanced “pinch-grip”, you will love the feel and function of these knives.
  • Lifetime Warranty - Every Lamson product comes with a Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects
  • Guaranteed reliability - Lamson's Sharp for Life™ program supplies a lifetime of complimentary professional sharpening on every knife they make.

  • The Nakiri knife has a deep belly on the knife with a predominantly straight edge crafted for chopping rather than rocking. The side on the knife looks a bit like a meat cleaver however the Nakiri is lighter and has a slimmer blade, allowing it to cut through onions, tomatoes, carrots, and other vegetables quicker and safer.
  • The main difference when using a Nakiri knife as opposed to a Chef’s knife or even a Santoku is that the Nakiri is built for chopping with an up and down motion.


  • Like all wood-handled knives, Lamson knives are not dishwasher safe.
  • Hone the blade edge regularly with a honing steel or whetstone.
  • If edge becomes dull even after honing, please have the blade professionally sharpened or send back to Lamson for free sharpening.
  • Hand-wash your cleaver with warm, soapy water and dry immediately with a soft, clean cloth.
  • Periodically apply mineral oil to the handle to prevent drying out.
  • Store your knife safely and out of the reach of children.
