I'm keen to see everyones nakiris, cleavers, basically anything not super pointy in this thread.

As much as I want to bring back NKW's intro thread as there were some very cool rectangles in that one already, I feel this is probably a more appropriate place for such a thread.

To start I've posted my current nakiris.
- A chonky Watanabe white steel 195mm nakiri that's still an ongoing project.
- Moritaka AS 180mm tall nakiri.
- Northside 26C3 130mm nakiri reborn from a snapped gyuto build.

Mystery nakiri and vintage cleaver, both stainless. Kanna and chisel generally not used for food.

Welllllllllll…I’m not sure. I asked for a 180x80 for me and 150x70 for him. But they look the same to me. 😳

If you look at the hammer "line" you'll see quite a difference. On the right one it pretty much runs straight out from the bottom of the handle, on the left it is about a handle's width lower. Not sure which is which but I suspect that is a telling sign they are in fact different sizes.

The small nakiri is the spitting image of the one I have, albeit with less KU. Where did it come from?

The Tosa nakiri from Hida Tool

Purchased at a "oriental" food store for about $12 in 1974. Only discovered the san-mai construction 2 years ago as I was sharpening. Thinnest hagane I ever encountered, and took some effort to get it back on center after decades of clueless sharpening.

What's the story on the 240 and 215?
What's the story on the 240 and 215?
240 was bought from knifejapan.com it’s a little rough around the edges but is a really fun one. Not expensive steel seems pretty good and durable. Lately I use this knife the most at work

215 was bought antique vintage from an eBay seller called happu I think. He Is always selling reclaimed old stuff. Another rough around the edges beater. Solid knife albeit very reactive. Both these knives I rehandled with Anton kudris handles I bought here on the forum.
