    Talk me out of wanting a nakiri

    The opposite of many posts here. I just got a nice gyuto. I have the urge to buy another knife. Tell me why I don't need a nakiri and save me some money

    You should get a nakiri.

    I had the pleasure of babysitting three of Butch Harner's nakiris last weekend. All I can say is -- buy one!

    You need a nakiri, sure, but before that, you REALLY need a sujihiki.

    I respectfully disagree.

    You need a nakiri first, so you can cut up the vegetables to feed to the cows, pigs, etc. The once they are all grown up you will need a nice suji (or three)

    I have to disagree, not less respectfully, though. How will you feed the guy who has to cut up these vegetables??
