Excellent knife -- as you would expect
I've been adding to my wife's basic set of Shun Classic kinves over the past couple of years. Each new one was initially greated with "Why do I need another knife?" But each one has its place and each one perfoms beautifully. The nakiri was the most recent addition and it has become a regular, especially since we've adopted a more vegetarian diet and this knife is great for chopping coarser vegetables. The only drawback is that is is a bit heavy for prolonged use. I'm sure we will get accustomed to that the more we use it. All the Shun knives are great -- expensive, but well worth it.
I recommend this product.
