    Maybe a new thread would be a good idea. Other knives you are considering would be helpful.

    A quick clarification if you don't mind. Gesshin Uraku and Yoshihiro are different brands, correct?

    I own a Uraku Nakiri and have handled most of the other Uraku knives. I haven't put enough time in with the nakiri because my example tends to wedge a bit and thus I think needs a bit of thinning/ profile work. That said for the price the fit and finish is great. You are getting a lot of knife for the money in this line especially since mine came with a saya as well. The steel seems to hold up well and responded well to sharpening.

    If you have any specific questions I would be happy to attempt to answer them. They are a great starter knife but I feel will truly perform best if the get thorough work out on the stones to touch up their profiles.
