Which lenght do you prefer?
Can a Nakiri get to long - so a cleaver would be a better option?

Thanks

I've used both 16.5 and 18 cm nakiris, and prefer the 18 cm.

Cleavers are an entirely different knife and techinique and aren't remotely comparable.

Rick,

Which ones are you using - brand?

I had both a Tojiro and a Tosagata (sold them - 16.5 cm was too short) and currently have a Butch Harner 'laser' and a Watanabe Pro (both 18 cm).

I use a Carter KU 180 nakiri, so tickled with it that I have yet to settle on another one. But there are a few I'd like to get ahold of, Takeda (always), Fujiwara, to name a few...

+1, I prefer the longer ones.

I find both the 165 and 180 feel good. If I want longer for whatever reason, I'll pick up a gyuto or cleaver.
