Sweet. Love our Wusthoffs but they're getting dull. What do you people use to sharpen them? Any favorites?
The Worksharp Precision Adjust is pretty easy to use. Sharpening nerds will scoff at it, but if you don't have the inclination to learn sharpening stones you will want something to offer assistance with finding and keeping the right angle. This lets you dial in any bevel you want. Use the course for rebeveling and fixing chips. Most of the sharpening happens with the fine grit. And use the ceramic for honing blades between sharpening.

Along these lines, there are similar systems on eBay and Amazon with lots of little parts. The popular Lansky systems with more stone options but you're running the blade right next to your hand, a DMT system that offers guided sharpening of serrations, and the great but super expensive wicked edge system.

As others mention, 5 inches too small for most for a Nakiri. A Nakiri is a niche knife in the first place so needs to be certain dimensions and setup to fulfill that niche. 6/8 inches with around 7 being ideal. It should NOT be full tang construction. It is a mini cleaver and needs to be front heavy. It should not have the balance point behind or at the bolster. This will lead to fatigue if using the knife over time and hurt your wrist. Otherwise the rest of it seems alright. It has the curve at the tip of the blade profile with the rest of the blade profile remaining straight to make a flat contact with the cutting surface. It shouldn't have a distal taper either. Not sure if this one does or doesn't. Not particularly a fan of hollow ground knives, but they can serve a purpose. They are also harder to maintain once real edge maintenance beyond honing is required. This looks to have good knuckle clearance at last for the size. Over all I say it is a fusion nakiri style knife that really shouldn't be done as a fusion knife.

Personally, since this one I've used around this price range, I would highly recommend the Nexus brand Nakiri over this one.

For $10 cheaper a $49.99 and made with better steel and better ergonomics with the size, it is going to be a much nicer nakiri to buy for anyone actually needing a nakiri. For better ergonomics in terms of the handle, this Mac is nice for the price. Unfortunately it is not stainless so it requires keeping extremely clean.

I wish I could have nice knives but my wife believes cutting boards are optional.

I know that scenario. I only let her touch the cheap set of walmart knives only. She is happy and I am happy with that situation. I randomly put an edge on those when needed to allow her to still cut things. The knives aren't super sharp either so she isn't scared of them. Also if she ends up using the stove top, the counter top, or a plate to cut food on then it isn't such a big deal.

Bought this a few months ago for this price on Amazon. It's a great smallish knife for slicing. Well worth the $60

I find I really like a smaller knife I have several small 2 1/2 to 4" blades that I use for a lot of things but the blades are very thin and narrow so they flex this should be a goo addition.

That Mac you're recommending is stamped steel, not forged steel. So, those considering that recommendation, be warned.

It's a great deal on an excellent forged knife, there's no denying that. I just want people to be aware that 5 inches is not as practical or comfortable as 7 inches on a Nakiri
I would agree with this. I suspect its on sale because it's 5".

Usuba's a better knife when you're working with a larger quantity. Still think Nakiri's knife action is better.

Looks like there is a 7" nakiri for $79.95

Wusthof Legende 7" Hollow Edge Nakiri Knife:
https://www.cutleryandmore.com/wu...fe-p137883
The only reason to buy that one is because you heard Wustoff is a good brand name and this knife has their name on it.

I really, really hate when grand brands sell out and make "budget" lines, and I hate it even more when the strategy actually works. It just makes having to research every little thing about every little product that much more difficult. You can't trust a brand anymore, because even the best of them have a flagship line that built their name alongside 4 garbage lines that are just money grabs.
