For herbivores, vegetable lovers and those who simply like to slice everything razor-thin with precision, you can save over $80 on a Shun Premier Nakiri Knife at several different retailers. Purpose-designed, nakiri knives are best used for chopping, slicing and dicing vegetables.
Unlike a chef’s knife, you don’t cut by rocking with the wrist, but rather by pushing forward and down onto whatever it is that you are cutting. Made of Shun’s signature hammered “super steel,” Shun’s handcrafted knives are ultra-sharp and require little maintenance over time. As far as upscale knives go, this is a remarkably good price for the value.
Why Should I Buy This $125 Knife?
We will let the Slickdeals populace speak on things you need to know about the Shun Premier Nakiri knife.
“This is a better deal for most people. 6.5-7″ is the standard size for a nakiri. For only $10 extra, it’s worth it for most people to get a full size one. I’d consider the 5.5″ version if you, or the person you’re buying it for, is very petite, or will work in a very cramped space.” — BaldS
“I have had this knife for 3 years and never sharpened it and it is still the sharpest knife in my kitchen. When I first bought it, it could cut through the paper test easily. It is a thing of beauty and is the perfect size.” — Hasassin
“Dwight Schrute told me that this knife outperforms the competition.” — drummer86
Ways to Access the Deal
Multiple retailers are currently offering a discount on the Shun Nakiri Knife, all for a little under $125. This might seem redundant, but if you have a special card, rewards or credit with a particular retailer, you can save even more on this luxurious tool.
- Amazon. Shipping is free for Prime members, but the knife won’t be back in stock until February 14th. If you were planning on surprising your significant other with a huge sharp knife, this just isn’t your year.
- Williams-Sonoma. This option is great for those who value instant gratification, as you have the option to pick your knife up at the store. You also have the option to get it monogrammed.
