Hi,

Got my hands on a Masahiro that kinda looks like a nakiri but is really narrow.

I'm out of ideas on how to find anything even remotely similar!

I would guess that it's a Peking duck cleaver by profile. Although I haven't seen a Japanese made duck cleaver before. But that would be my guess. It's designed specifically for breaking down and portioning and slicing cooked poultry.

It's also very hard to see the scale but if could just be a "fruit knife" if it's very small.

It measures 160/285mm.

A broken tipped gyuto crossed my mind, but the tip looks quite untouched. Whatever it is, it's still a pretty nice 3-layer piece!
