    That's the first one sold and in public hands too isn't it? Great score and I don't think I've ever seen square look more hip. How's the new convex grind work out in cutting performance? Do you have a Martel gyuto to compare to?

    Yes this is the first one he has made and sold to someone. Unfortunately, I don't have a Martell guyto to compare it to...yet

    The knife is a great cutter. I've been doing my best to put it through its paces. It glides through dense or soft produce with minimum food sticking to the blade. I've also had no issue with food turning black or it being too reactive. I'm starting to develop some patina on it and I imagine the performance will get better over time.

    I think it looks fantastic. Dave's nakiri might well be the only western-handled nakiri I'm gonna want

    Yes, it is nice. Len I think you only have 4 or 5 nakiris now. Surely that is not enough?

    Well if you're going to remind me to be responsible then I suppose I've got enough nakiri at the moment

    I got from 330mate on fleebay. The whole shipping thing was a bit of a clusterf#ck, but it got resolved. The spine is chunky @ 3/16 but it doesn't wedge. I'm doing a re-handle of a Tojiro ITK Gyuto and will probably do one to this. It deserves a better handle than this one.

    I'd say nothing's stopping you from getting a good half a dozen, Len. You can use one for each separate vegetable in a meal, and probably be sorted for most of your home cookin', unless you go vegetarian.

    It is a nice western, though.
