Murata Buho Western vs Japanese handles.

Thu Apr 24, 2014 8:23 pm

Can someone tell me if there is any difference between the grinds and steel? The measurements differ but the different handles seem to change where the measurement was taken.

I am interested in the Nakiri but only if it has the same grind/thinness that I saw in the western handle nakiri review.

Also the blade heights differ leading me to worry I'm not going to get the steel from the $200 dollar western version

The nakiri is similar on the blade but it's so much lighter than the western one because of the handle that it feels completely different. I like the wa version much better. It's also cheaper.
