The Nakiri knife 16.5 cm Tojiro-Pro DP Damaskus is the Japanese version for vegetable chopper. 

The Nakiri blade shape is traditional for Japanese vegetable knives and is mostly used for cutting all kinds of vegetables, fish, meat, slicing and dicing.

Opposite to the gyuto, the nakiri isn’t rocked like a chef's knife. Instead, with just a simple effortless push, it cuts with great precision vegetables of all kinds. 

In spite of its hatchet shape, this knife is not suitable for dissecting bones.

Tojiro-Pro Damascus Steel series is a professional-level, western style knife with a blade decorated with 37-layer Damascus linings. The wavy pattern is called Kasumi Nagashi, meaning "flowing mist". 

The central layer of the blade is made of VG-10 steel, an extremely hard core alloy with the addition of cobalt, hardened to a hardness of 60+/-1 HRC Rockwell, developed by Takefu industries.
The core is clad with a softer, 
corrosion-resistant cobalt alloy steel 420J type.

This traditional technique of obtaining layered steel is one of the most valuable treasures of Japanese craftsmen, as it increases the concentration of atoms in the core of the knife, and thus - extends the durability of the blade.

The Tojiro Pro-DP Damascus series knives are beautifully finished and easy to maintain, and their riveted Micarta laminate handles are environmentally friendly and extremely durable.
Three rivets offer additional security to the knife. 

Tojiro-Pro DP Damaskus knives are full tang and have a bolster (Tsuba) which adds extra equivalence and weight.
