3 people found this review helpfulThe Yuki is a superb nakiri. Gets wicked sharp, sharpens easily, and with a thin edge it can handle almost anything. Great for fast chopping vegetables and also general use in Asian-style cooking. Blows away my old Mac, Vic and Wusthof nakiris.
The rose ferrule is one of the coolest on CKTG, though the handle does need to be sanded lightly and finished with mineral oil to seal out moisture.
The extra height makes it good for scooping and long life. It also gives the Yuki more heft and authority than other nakiris even though its thin at the edge.
Do be careful with hard stuff like sweet potatoes. Any torquing of the Yuki can cause microchipping. The chips do come out easily, however.
