    Takeda does make one heck of a nikiri but I really love what I see from SY. I'm sure the yuke is a really solid knife. Good luck with that!!

    The cheapest way to get into a Shige is with a nakiri....

    I have been thinking about selling my shig. Let me know if interested. It's an amazing knife.

    I think a Nakiri is a fun knife for a home user to slay vegs with. A Carter is my favorite to date. This week I'm playing with a Gesshin Uraku from Crothcript's passaround and liking it. Good f/f, good balance, skd stainless, great price. Could do a lot worse.

    I am enjoying my Shig nakiri...and at 180 it's a nice length, too.

    The photos of that Sakai Yusuke Ginsan nakiri appear to show a pretty thick blade. It just might be the way the pictures are turning up.

    You can't go wrong with either the Kono HD or the Takeda. I've used both. But I don't recommend the ebony handle on a Kono because it adds a good one and a half to two ounces to the overall weight.

    If it was me, I'd jump on this.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence
