Hello,
Love your site, it is very helpful.
I am presently looking for a nakiri knife. My budget limit is $200 and I see several possibilities. Would you advise me?
I am a home cook to my vegetable loving family, I can deal with a knife requiring extra care but prefer an easy care knife. I have never owned a wa handle knife but would not mind trying one at all.
Thank you,
Maria

I have a love affair with the Yukis. Try this. It will freak you out. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/mayuna16.html

I picked up this Konosuke HH nakiri for $145 a month or so ago and my experience with it has been fantastic. A match for knives well above its price in a good stainless steel.

The HH is an excellent choice as well. Here is the link to it: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kostna18.html

Hard not to love them; the grinds on the Yukis are just silly thin ON THE EDGE...

My wife has totally fell in love with my new Kohetsu HAP 40 nakiri. She prefers western handles, and the Kohetsu comes with a beautiful Mahogany handle.
The HAP40 steel has amazing edge retention, so you will not have to get it sharpened that often.
She told me she can make nice thin cuts on the vegetables with no tearing.
It's clad with stainless, so care is pretty easy.
You have 3 excellent choices made already, buy whatever looks good to you.

What about Murata Western Nakiri 165mm http://www.chefknivestogo.com/buwena16. It's on sale for 199, just in your budget. Great grinding, thin behind edge, probably worth of consideration.

Also give the Kohetsu SLD Nakiri a look: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kosldna16.html. It has a little moe belly to the edge profile than many Nakiri knives, just so you know. Great knife for the $.

+1 for the Yuki you will like the extra height, even though it's a little over budget, that's is a great picture of the grind

HH Konosuke would get my vote as well.
