    It is the Same price as the normal Nakiri but it seems the point would make it more versitale.

    Edit. I guess I was wrong about the width. My personal bunka was a lot narrower (45 mm range) than most Takeda nakiri's I've seen. I guess it was a sampling issue. All this Takeda nakiri love is giving me second thoughts on my plans to sell my Takeda nakiri.

    Arizona Custom Knives has a lot of Takeda stuff.

    Lefty is selling a new Harner in the B/S/T that looks awesome. I'd snap that up if was looking for a nakiri at the moment.

    It took a very sharp edge, and kept it for a very long time. I have bought a few since this pass a round, but my mind keeps going back to this one.
    +1. Havent tried any others but my Yamawaku has great retention,reasonably unreactive and gets sharp.Hasnt chipped or bent and it gets a bit of abuse.For the price it is a winner but it took a while to arrive.

    1. very very good edge retention

    3. absolutely zero food sticking
    4. thin and will fall through everything it is an amazing cutter
    5. easy to re-sharpen and maintain edge
    6. rugged good looks

    I would stay away from the Moritaka because of the un-rounded tip
    The Shig is very nice but will be more reactive and have less edge retention
    I have no opinion on the HD
    agree completely
