- verified customerI used to be a gyuto man. I used one for just about everything. I have them in five different lengths from a traditional Japanese gyuto to a KS. Then I bought this Nakiri. It was not my first Kanehiro. I recommend anything they produce. The Ginsan steel is wonderful and practically worry free. The nashiji finish is among the best I have seen. The handle is well executed as well. The hardest thing to describe is how the knife feels in my hand. It is a tad heavier than I was used to, but it feels like an extension of my hand. The weight and the balance make it so easy to go exactly where I want it to go and accomplish what I desire. It definitely makes my knife skills look better than they are. OOTB I would give the sharpness a 6-7. It was sharp enough to use, but my Shapton glass stones got it perfectly sharp. Edge retention seems to be great. If you do not have a Nakiri or are looking to replace yours, this Kanehiro is well worth your consideration. And as always the customer service from CKTG was stellar.
