Posted By: Scott DillmanThis Nakiri, while not winning beauty contests in the kitchen, is still a fantastic dependable vegetable prep machine! I'm a lead cook at a small retreat center that caters to many special diets. I was looking for a fast veggie chopper for a long vegetarian retreat and this Yamashin fits the bill nicely. I rounded the spine with sandpaper as it was a little sharp, and gave the edge a quick sharpen on a 6000 grit stone and a leather strop with .5 micron diamond paste. After that the weight of the knife melted through boxes of zuccinni, carrots, celery and onions. If you are looking for a dependable entry level nakiri that won't break your heart of some helpful staffer decides to use right on a hard counter this is for you.
