    Nakiri questions

    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.

    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).

    +1. I haven't found a 180 I love. I would ideally go for a Yoshihiro SKD with a little more length.

    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...

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