Yup, Kiritsuke are like a long nakiri. I even converted my Tojiro Kiritsuke into a big Nakiri after my mom knocked it onto the floor and it lost 1/2" of the tip. LOL.

Check out a nakiri for those long carrots, this is where they shine! Or a bigger cleaver or something.

I have a ceramic nakiri right now that I really like. What are your opinions on a bunka? Like the fact that its a nakiri size but still has the tip. There's a house bunka at work that I find myself using all the time. Any suggestions?

Pricey knives. Here is the product page. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/nsearch.h ... ka&x=0&y=0

Never used any, but based on reputation, I am betting the kono fujiyama in white or blue #2 is gonna be very, very nice. For the money, the yuki might be the best buy. The takedas look like they have a pretty consistent blade height, while the others taper down towards the tip.

LOL. Just finished making a 120mm petty into a paring knife after the same thing happened.
