    I have 3 Nakiri's and I can't think of any distal taper at all. I don't think they are to have any. I can be wrong tho.

    Well I have three as well and it appears that two of them have distal tapers, whatever. Put the knife through some minor paces today and was very impressed. Edge was sharp and there was no wedging at all. Really like the balance and make up of this knife, so far. More to come.

    I have done my due diligence and will have a complete report in a few days. Pete did you want a pass at this one? Let me know, ready to ship this one out.

    Don't think you will find a better nakiri for the price.

    I just recently got the Uraku Kamagata usuba and am super pleased with it. I knew what I was getting myself into with the nice fit and finish and sweet saya on this knife. Thanks again for the opportunity to use it!
