Welcome to Platypus Knife Know How

Find all the helpful information below

We designed our Platypus knife as a western-style nakiri (vegetable chopper). With a blade length of 150mm, this is an easy to handle knife and at a size easily transportable for outdoor cooking. Modelled after classic vegetable choppers the Big Red Knives’ Platypus Knife has a straighter edge designed for fast and efficient rapid chopping. With a slight upwards bend towards the tip the blade is also able to perform the rocking style of chopping for all the usual suspects such as spring onions, garlic and herbs.
