There’s absolutely no stopping Made In. The DTC cookware brand is at it again with a brand-new, limited-edition knife that’s going to bring so much joy (and ease) to one of the most tedious cooking chores: chopping vegetables! Fitted with a nakiri blade, the knife is specifically designed to slice, dice, and chop tough-skinned butternut squash, extra-juicy tomatoes, and delicate okra like a champ! In fact, this knife is such a game-changer in the kitchen that we can think of not one (or two!) but three reasons why you should absolutely consider adding it to your cart before it sells out.

1. It’s All in the Blade

As we mentioned, the limited-edition Nakiri Knife has a nakiri blade that’s a staple in Japanese households as well as a favorite with chefs and pro cooks. Unlike regular pointed blades, the 6.38-inch nakiri is especially suited for slicing vegetables and fruit thanks to the uniquely shaped thin, straight, and rectangular blade that allows it to easily slice through produce without a horizontal pull or push. The 7-oz. blade is also lighter, thinner, and more nimble compared to other blades, which means you’ll be able to cut more delicate and precise slices with complete ease.

2. It’s a Total Showstopper!

While the knife is obviously a pro at its job, it’s also going to look beautiful in your hand. From the smooth, subtle Spanish olive wood handle with delicate brass rivets to the straight, symmetrical-edge nakiri blade, this knife is an absolute piece of art. And just like the gorgeous Nancy Silverton Bread Knife that launched earlier this month, the Nakiri Knife is also made by fifth-generation, family-owned knifemakers in Thiers, France. Made In commissioned only a limited number of these knives, so you’ll truly have a one-of-a-kind piece to call your own.

3. It’s Going to Last Forever

Like all Made In knives, the Nakiri is full tang and fully forged, which means it was created by heating up and hammering a single rod of nitrogen-treated stainless steel. Translation: It’s rock-solid hard. It’ll be years before it needs a little resharpening, and the blade won’t get rusty or corroded. Just hand wash it with warm water and soap to keep it in top shape.

And if you’re a Made In fan (like, who isn’t?), you know that their new product launches tend to sell out rather quickly. So if you’re ready to make meal prep a lot easier (and sleeker), grab the Nakiri Knife before it’s gone.
