The nakiri knife, or Japanese vegetable knife, is a knife style developed in Japan for the sole purpose of cutting vegetables. Single-purpose knives are extremely common in Japan, as each knife is made to the highest quality to serve a single role in the kitchen better than any other tool.

The nakiri is perfect for slicing through thick vegetables, dicing and julienning carrots, shaving and peeling thin strips of daikon radish, and cutting perfectly uniform pieces of potatoes, tomatoes, and more. Japanese knives are often made of extremely sharp carbon steel, or the highest quality Japanese stainless steel, to ensure great cuts and excellent edge-retention.
