Finally, I found a great and reasonably priced Nakiri! This looks like a vegetable knife used by sushi chefs (called Usuba), but it's thin and super-sharp and so makes a fantastic all-around kitchen chopper (note: it's NOT a cleaver, so don't use it like one... frozen foods, root vegetables and other hard items can damage any thin and sharp knife). Use it like a straighter version of a santoku or chef's knife for chopping vegetables and fruits and other such items. Just as with the santoku in this series, you get a super sharp and long-lasting VG-10 steel cutting core (just like on a Shun Classic santoku), with a 17-layer hammered steel surface and a beautifully finished natural wood handle. The handle is made of Pakkawood, which has that nice wooden feel and look, but it is impregnated with resin/epoxy so it won't absorb water or warp or crack -- an excellent material!

Makes a great and really useful addition to a santoku or chef's knife, and what a unique and cool gift idea!

Comes in a beautiful gift box.

I'd recommend the fine ceramic hone (see below) for regular/daily maintenance of the edge. As with any knife, use the hone regularly and you'll keep the edge in good shape for a LONG time before you need to think about doing any serious "re-sharpening" or real grinding and refinishing of the edge.

NOTE: This knife is sharpened 50/50 (equally on the right and left side), so it's easy to maintain and fine for right or left hand use. If you look carefully at the edge, you might see a slight right-side bias, this is just because the final edge is so tiny and because of the way they finish the edge; it has NO bearing on right- or left-hand use, sharpening or maintenance and can be ignored, so you should treat the edge just like any standard 50/50 edge.
