    i have a couple Nakiri's, a smaller one ~165 x 50 and a larger one~185 x 60. The larger one is more substantial and I use it a lot more, almost like a small slicing cleaver. I think it is a fun tool to have.

    I have a Watanabe Pro (stainless cladded) that both my wife and I love. I've always wanted a Takeda too.

    One thing I really appreciate about Naks is sharpening the mostly straight edge - no need to fart around with the curve. Just grind and de-burr. Swee-eet!

    kelly loves the tester i have here at the house in XHP im a fan too as not often do i really need a point on a knife (wheni do i use a petty )
    i will say tho my naks run a bit (ok more then a bit) longer then most souse as a chef blade is not too mu ch of a stretch

    Nah, I thought that steel was VERY nice on that knife. Held an edge a long time. Surprisingly different from any other SKD. It didn't seem to discolor at all during use.

    The Yoshihiro SKD nakiri is much thinner than my Shig, for example. Very nice and thin.

    Gave an old Tojiro Nakiri to my parents when I was done with it. Last couple weeks i've been using my CCK a helluva lot so I checked in on the weekend and snuck home with it! Don't tell! I've fallen in love with that shape again!

    Thought I would be good with custom gyuto's apparently I need custom nakiri's too!
