    Do you like your nakiri?

    I'm thinking about adding one to the collection, but need a little incentive.

    It's a fun knife, but more often i'll reach for a gyuto instead. Carter has recently listed a load of Nakiris that look niiiice

    Mine was my first carbon knife, cost me about $50, and I still use it all the time. It is what I pull out when I just need to make a few cuts and be done.

    It's not like I couldn't do this with any other knife, but I like having it around.

    I enjoy my nakiri. I have a 165 but wish I had a 180. It feels a bit short, especially on the basketball sized onions I get. It kinda feels like a gyuto missing the front third of the blade. Fun knife to use though.

    They are fun to use, but I find myself reaching for a gyuto for any task that isn't purely vegetable prep.

    If you get one, get a 180mm, as suggested. 165mm is just too short.

    They are fun to use, but not necessary.

    A nakiri is often my go-to for home when the rest of my kit is at work.

    I have this little one from Maksim -

    http://www.japanesenaturalstones.com...65mm-p/609.htm

    It has that shig style spinal flare at the handle and is a unique and fun knife that is reasonably priced. Fun seems to be the most oft used description in the posts so far and I agree.
