    What's your all time favourite nakiri?

    Just curious what you think is the ultimate nakiri? Is it konosuke? Denka? Heiji? Let's have an exchange. I just sold my moritaka. I've had it for a couple of years, and needed to let it go. Think I'm looking for something new, a nice performer for veggies.
