- verified customerI just got my artifex Nakiri tonight. I got the thinning service done. Not sure if they do extra sharpening included with the thinning service, but the edge is indeed, quite sharp! I bought this as my first Nakiri after realizing I like a flatter edge. Just used it tonight to chop an onion and a carrot. So far so good. So people have said this knife is thick behind the edge. I would not agree with that. While it does not just glide through product like my Kohetsu Gyoto, it is no where near as thick as my Wusthof Chef's knive. I will have to use it some more to give a better assessment, particularly on how well it sharpens, but out of the box, I am pretty happy. It does feel a little heavy, but that could just be that my Blue #2 Kohetsu is so light. Again, not as heavy as the Wusthof, but not a light weight either. Cool knife, and for the money, I can't imagine you would find a better value.
