    On it's way to VoodooMajik. Sent a few pics to TK that he requested. Nice little knife. Can't go wrong for the price. I don't think it's really my style, but it could just be I am not a Nakiri guy. I feel like echerub in his above comments, but I appreciate the chance to try it out.

    I've got the knife, Lovely handle, I really like forge scale finishes. Killer edge. Now I've just got to use it

    I mighta got carried away, ha ha. The edge on the nakiri is very much a treat. I ended up demoing 2 cases of fingerlings, a case of cucumber, half a case of tomato, half a case of peppers, dozen bulbs of anise, bunch of carrots, and a dozen red onion along with a few other things. cut everything like soft butter, just lovely. I didn't try any butternut but everything I did cut it simply fell through. Shaving the red onion and Anise, I didn't notice much if any reaction. Pretty sweet looking knife, I enjoy forge scale finishes, the handle looks very nice. Thank you very much for including me in the pass around!! I'm going to retire it until Tuesday when I'm off and can ship it out.

    For under $100? I would certainly consider it when I need/want a new nakiri.

    I can't say anything bad about the knife or the price. I doubt I would buy one. It could however just be my taste in knives which is unfair towards the Nakiri. I love gyutos. I love my Sakai. I can't wait for my Rodrigue. I really liked the feel of TK's Devin Thomas at the west coast get together. With my kanisaki deba,270mm gyuto and a tojiro itk bread knife I have been able to do whatever I want. I will probably sell a lot of the knives I originally bought.
