Knife Types

Multi-purpose / Double Bevel

Designed to resemble the shape of a Western chef's knife, though typically thinner, lighter, and less curved. Best used for cutting meats and larger foods.

Santoku - All-Purpose

All-purpose knives with a flat edge and a sheepsfoot blade. Designed to cut in a push-cut chopping motion, rather than the Western rocking motion.

Nakiri - Vegetable
菜切

Square-tipped knives made for chopping vegetables with a push-cut chopping motion. The blade is both thin and deep, allowing the user to easily cut through vegetables.

文化

Knives that share the same blade profile as santoku - a flat edge and sheepsfoot blade - though with the tip cut off to a sharp point for small detail work.

Petty-Utility
ペティー

Extremely versatile smaller knives used for pairing or cutting small produce. The general blade shape is based on that of a gyuto knife.
