Any disadvantages to the Takeds Banno Bunka vs nakiri? I need a nakiri, but this knife seems more fun.

I couldn't foresee one....looks to function just like a nakiri but with a tip.

Grab it and let us know how you like it. :)

Hi Tom,


Yes Takeda's banno bunkas are really good knives and they're somewhat unique. It's like a nakiri with a pointy tip and it's actually quite useful as a utility knife for a variety of tasks.

The only disadvantage to the knife is it is a little short for some people. 170mm works out to about 6.75 inches on the edge.

I don't get the short part. In checking out nakari's most are the same length or shorter.
