I've used a few vegetables knives over the years that have done a pretty good job cutting vegetables up. But I have to say that continuing to use even the best knives, for as much time as I do, and how often I do it, the knives do eventually need to be sharpened. The price of sharpening can be high for some, and some knives are not as easy to sharpen as others. I think Dalstrong has really hit a home run with the cover for their Shogun Series X Nakiri Vegetable Knife.
The Nakiri has an apex-like blade configuration which creates a lot of cutting force when cutting through a vegetable's tough fibers. The fork-like point allows you to cut in multiple directions with a single action of sliding it along the vegetable. The samurai-style blade is extremely sharp and performs a surgical cut, which is ideal for hones like cabbage, cucumber and carrot. The durability of the knife is excellent, which is a big benefit for any chef who usually immediately wants to use his/her favorite knives and is ready to take on the next task.
I think this is a pretty good buy, and I think chefs and other cooks can really benefit from it. It is an exceptional knife for a very good price.
