I have held out making this type for a long time, but finally gave up.

Here you go. 180mm nakiri in AEB-L (170mm on the edge). S grind. The weight with a handle is going to be about 215-225g. 62RC. .1mm thin at the edge. Will use stainless PM#2 going forward mostly because don't have a good source for AEB-L in 3.4mm thickness - my preferred thickness to start from. That's the thickness at the handle, though the spine tapers to 1.9mm at the tip. It's a stiff, a good weight knife.

I have had numerous requests for nakiri over time, so this type is likely to be included in the line of knives I will make on a regular basis.

This one will have a D handle, but western or hybrid D will be options in a near future.

PS: Might give cleaver a try as well.

Looks great! I like the flat profile on nakiri's

Thank you.

It has a slight curve in the half toward the tip. Cleaver is a difficult knife to make (heat treat and grind), so for now I am just making one in my head. Once I am ready, I will give it a try.
