The Pristine Performer. They may look similar to the Santoku Knife, but they have a flat blade to allow you to cut right through to the chopping board, without needing the rocking motion like the Santoku.

Nakiri Knives are best suited for:
- Chop and dice vegetables (celery, onions, leeks, carrots, eggplant etc..)
- Cutting fruits
- Precision cutting with softer fruits/vegetables
Nakiri Knives are not suited for:
- Butchering bones or meat
- Carving meat
- Slicing bread
Damascus Steel Blade
I AM STRONG, SHARP AND BORN TO CUT. A well-made Damascus Steel blade will retain its sharpness for longer than most quality blades due to the way their metals are forged.
Anciently, Damascus Steel was what was typically found in weapons. But, today, we don’t forge the materials in the same way, however with modern technology, a Damascus Steel Blade is still a far superior product.
Damascus Steel Knives are durable, flexible and stain resistant. They are high carbon forged steel (VG-10) and recognisable by their wavy patterned design and exceedingly sharp edge!
They tend to be more expensive than other stainless steel knives, but if you treat it as an investment, you will surely get your money’s worth.

Damascus Care Instructions:
- Cutting surfaces should be smooth, easy to clean, such as wooden, bamboo and polyethylene boards.
- Avoid surfaces that can damage the blade, such as ceramic, stainless steel, granite, marble, porcelain and glass.
