The large Nakiri from Yoshimi Kato is a very unique knife.

This is a stainless cladded knife with the SG2/R2 powder steel core. The knife is ground super thin behind the edge, and at only 178mm in length, it feels very nimble. I like that you can get the same functionality as a normal Chinese cleaver without feeling too large (a Sugimoto 6 is measured at 220x110mm). This is more of a slicer grind therefore you should not use it to chop bones.

Kato-san often work with Kurosaki and their knives are very similar in terms of geometry and grind. He is also responsbile for many knives produced under other brands such as Kotetsu, Kanehiro and Masagake.
