Which nakiri?

Sun Dec 16, 2012 4:26 pm

I'm looking to purchase a right handed Aogami Super Steel nakiri. I like the Takeda, Moritaka and Konosuke. Any others I should add to this list?

The Fujiyama Blue #2 Konosuke looks really awesome! The Tanaka Sekiso Damascus Blue #2 Nakiri should also perform well. I prefer the shape of the Takeda over the Moritaka; I like that little lift in the front and not having a sharp corner at the front of the Nakiri.

Yeah, I I agree with Tim on the rounded bottom front over the square tip.

Takeda is what I'd get to fit the criteria you listed.

Shosui makes a great Nakiri.

I went for the Takeda and am very impressed with the knife. Out of the box its very sharp and handles well. It's a beautiful knife and I guess now I need to learn how to sharpen it to its full potential. Thank you all for the good advice.
