Hi Folks,

I received the knives (very quick shipping!) and am impressed! Much different in feel than anything else I've used and it is taking a bit of practice to get used to them. Not a bad thing at all.

Both the Tanaka nakiri and Kohetsu santoku are very light and are quite handy in feel. I especially like the Kohetsu santoku - great feel in the hand and using it is almost effortless; a more natural fit than the Tanaka nakiri, I think. Fit and finish on both are nice but the Kohetsu is a level better. I'm glad I got both - the nakiri because I want to learn how to use it and the santoku because it is great.

Thank you all for the recommendations. I'll probably never buy another western knife again and am making a list of what I want/need. The next purchase will probably be a gyuto, 210 most likely, and I'm liking the Masakage Shimo a lot. Again suggestions are welcome!

And yes, Miyazaki is fantastic. I discovered his work when my kids were young and "My Neighbor Totoro" was their favorite.

Cheers

Thanks for the report Henry. Glad you like the knives :-).

When you start looking again, think about a 240 Gyuto. IMO a 210 might be too close in size to the Kohetsu. It does depend on your workspace and cutting board size, though. Oh, And the Shimo is a killer knife!

Great to hear your liking them! Like Steve said, I am partial to the 240mm.

I discovered Miyazaki in college, my kids watch his stuff all the time now.
