As the title says, nothing expensive but they do what I need them to do.
The Nakiri just arrived today so have not had a chance to use it yet.

At some point down the line, I may get the Nakiri re-handled.

If it's awesome to you then it is awesome! And yes beer is cheaper than therapy, that's why my insurance company buys my beer now. :mrgreen:

I would love to have some nicer knives but my wife would put me to the curb if I told her i wanted a $200+ knife. At this point just not necessary for my needs.
Got to have my beer in the evenings.

Hey good for you Ed. I'm having a ball with my Tanaka nakiri too. I'm sure there are better ones out there but --- what else is new? This one's a lot of fun now.

Good for you.

I wish I could trim down my collection to that size again, lol.

Wait, what the hell am I saying???? haha.

Thanks for sharing, that Tanaka is a great performer for the price, I was also recently surprised by the value put forward by Murata!

I've been using the Murata and the Tanaka lately. I like the feel of the knives. Still trying to get my sharpening down, which is the main reason I don't use the Hiro much.

I put the Tanaka to the 1.2k stone over the weekend and surprisingly able to get it sharp enough to shave hair. The sharpness of the Tanaka OTB was not good. Now it's pretty sharp-not as sharp as the Hiro but it does the job. Gonna put the Murata on the stones again this week to see if I can get it sharper than what it currently is.

Had a little beer therapy this weekend myself.
