Easy for vegetable prep
Just started using Shun Classic Nakiri and very impressed with how it performs. The 6-1/2 inch blade slices all through an entire celery bulb in one strike.. I made cold Gastpacho soup this past humid weekend just to have another reason to chop and dice with the nakkiri. This knife did not disappoint ....Move over santoku!

I'm trying to decide between the 4 and 6.5" nakiri knives. What would be examples of what the larger blade could do and vice versa? Pros and cons of each?

Best Answer: Hello!
You only really need one great chef's knife and both sizes are great. They are balanced, sharp, and lightweight. I would suggest buying a chef's knife based on how it feels in your hand. If it is comfortable to use and if the weight feels good, you cannot go wrong with either of these. My husband uses the 6.5 for everything! It does need to be sharpened often. You can not let it air dry or it will get spots. In other words, you do have to maintain them. Highly recommend brand and knife. You can check out global if you haven't already.
