    I often think of my nakiri as the little sports car in my knife drawer. I got the Fiero. You got the Ferraris.

    Oh, right! I was intrigued by this when you included it in the under $300 thread, but couldn't find any retailer selling it. Where did you get it?

    (off topic: not sure what you call "tallish", but Yoshimune are under US$200, & have big flat spots: my 240 is 51mm at heel, KnS say they range 52-53 for 240 & 210, http://www.knivesandstones.com/yoshimune-sanjo-gyuto-240mm-white-2/ )
