I have been watching videos of nakiri/clever use on the web. What I am wondering is how much of a difference there is in using these types of knives for straight up and down motion as opposed to the flat part of the gyuto shape.
Most comments I read about these say the gyuto is the best all purpose knife. The nakiri is nice for limited space and when one wants to try a different shape for fun. The clever I know far less about.
As a less experienced person am I better off to just focusing on using my gyuto or is there a good reason to try a nakiri or clever besides fun.
