Blade runner: The Nakiri is the Japanese knife you want for vegetables

My Syosaku-Japan Nakiri knife is a true joy to use, and my go-to knife whenever I have any vegetables or meat to slice. Its razor-sharp edge and perfect balance in my hand makes slicing and dicing FUN -- it's the best way to describe the experience having such a fine tool to use in my cooking!
