Hello CKTG-izens. Looking at Nakiris and narrowed it down between these two; have been wanting a Moritaka for a while, but I got a chance to try out the Fujiwara Gyuto and if his Nakiri performs anywhere near how the Gyuto did I know I would fall in love. Any opinions on the two? I have experience with both White #1 and AoS and don't really prefer one over the other.

Right handed with smaller hands, more push cuts than rocking.

Also, saw Shaun's video review of the Testsuhiro hammered and that perked my interest as well. So if you have any better recommendations I could be persuaded...

The Teruyasu Fujiwara's have amazing blades....I don't know how I could recommend against it.

My problem with the Moritaka nakiri's is the square tip. I much prefer a rounded tip. I tend to ram the square tip of that style into the cutting board and getting it stuck.

Another great choice would be a Takeda nakiri:

Thanks Adam, didn't think much about the tip. I love Takeda blades, but I already have two and wanted to try someone different :P

Can't the square tip be rounded slightly if it is a problem?

Go with the Terayasu. I have on in 165mm and it is awesome. Opened my eyes to Nakiri's; I have 3 of them now :)
