This is an excellent knife for someone who wants a nakiri with a forward weight-balance. The one correction I wish to make is mine weighs 7.07oz, not the 6oz the website says nor the 6.1oz the video says. I think this is more than just the variance of being handmade, especially since mine is basically the same dimensions as the one in the video (4.2mm spine before the bladed part, 2.8mm spine where the blade begins, tapers fairly quickly to 2.4mm which it maintains for the rest of the length).The flat blade profile of this is great for working with vegetables and an excellent chopper/push slicer.. It does however make it a bad rocker, to the point that I will reach for a chef's knife for garlic even if I used this for everything else in the dish.
