Last time I did, I was still coming down on a heavy dose of quaaludes. I thought I was leaving a negative yelp review for my local starbucks, but the next morning I realized I had unconsciously bought a 210 nakiri.has anyone consciously bought a 210 nakiri over a cleaver?
FWIW I was looking for a flat profile for better push cutting and eventually just ended up trying the Shibata Kotetsu 240. Currently my favourite knife. As long as you take care of the blade with good technique, it'll take care of youCould possibly also consider the Shibata Kotetsu...
I have two 210 Nakiri’s - Watanabe Pro and Toyama. Love them both, and they are a joy to use - Watanabe the more heavier of the twoFWIW I was looking for a flat profile for better push cutting and eventually just ended up trying the Shibata Kotetsu 240.

Keen to see how this pans out for you though, as I'd be open to a longer nikiri than my 165 Anryu in the future.
They're out there, but they aren't always called "nakiri". You might find super-size nakiri's listed as "suika-kiri" ("watermelon-cutter"), "negi-kiri" ("scallion[-bunch] cutter"), "oh-gata nakiri" ("large-scale nakiri"), or yet something else. You'll likely have to do some digging around.Cutting a watermelon this morning, thinking it would be nice to have a larger Nakiri...
I've seen a lot of extra long nakari shaped knives being used SE Asia for melons and other fruit. Usually Kiwi or a similar brand at very low prices rather than the ultra expensive by their standards Japanese versions.Why only 210 if you can get 360?
