    Pots and pans UK edition

    Saw this one in local IKEA: https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/sensuell-sauteuse-stainless-steel-grey-50324549/ Was astonished (feels like a tank, especially regarding it's price/ all Sensuell line seems well made) by it and will most probably be my next purchase.

    What (or rather, where) is the point of a nakiri?
