Pallares Nakiri - Boxwood - Carbon Steel
Nakiri knives are made for vegetable prep, and are extremely good for thin slicing large batches of cabbage and onions.
Pallares is a third generation family run company in Solsona, Spain. Started in the early 20th century in what was then a center of knife-making, they are now the last of the traditional companies in Solsona still producing knives. They produce wonderful hand ground knives and tools for cooks, butchers, gardeners, and farmers.
