    Very generous of you to include me in the pass around. Looking forward to comparing it's performance to that of my Harner nakiri.

    if it was a gyuto, I would love to try it as I have been curious about gifting that brand to friends to get them into knives. I would love to see a review about it since it is the same steel and should perform similarly.

    Yeeeaaahhh

    Thanks again Lefty, I really really appreciate this.

    This knife will get shipped out tomorrow, to echerub. Sorry, but I doubt I'll have time to sharpen it up. If I do, I will, but who knows

    Okay, the knife arrived on Monday I *just* finished sharpening it up: Beston 500, SS 1k, SS3k, Gesshin 5k, Ohira Tomae.

    My initial thought when I picked up the knife was that it has a lower profile height than my other nakiri and that it felt a little front-heavy. However, when I picked up my other 4 nakiri for a direct comparison, the Yamawaku is a little shorter height-wise, but weight and balance wise it's good. In fact, every single one of the nakiri - my 4 and the Yamawaku - feels different weight and balance-wise.

    Putting it on the stones from coarse on up, the steel feels okay. Not particularly fast to work on, at least with these stones, but not slow either. Burr was a little tenacious off the 500 and 1k. Not stubborn per se, but took a second round through the felt block and felt strop to get it off.

    Paper-testing the edge it's alright. Push cuts through the paper a-ok from 3k onwards. Not the slinkiest through the paper, but let's see how it performs with food.

    I intend to go through a whole whackload of veggies for a big pot of oxtail soup tomorrow evening I'll let you know my thoughts!
