- verified customerHome cook and knife lover here. This is my first nakiri and the steel seems comparable to 1095 carbon or CV steel. Takes a great edge using waterstones, oil stones, or Sharpmaker rods when used flat. Out of the box edge was decent but if you know your way around stones and strops, the edge can easily be taken to the next level. I have mine at the hair popping and push cut on paper stage after some light stropping with Hand America diamond slurry. I have little doubt that with some more work, I can achieve hair whittling performance. After cutting some onions and forcing a patina with mustard and water, this knife is ready for some serious use. Outstanding value and lightning fast shipping.
