Still some amazing nakiris available now: Kanehiro ginsan, Goko, Kamo R2, Yahiko Nashiji. Having used variations of all those in other knife forms, I'd be thrilled with any of them. My guess is the Goko would be closest to the Yuki.

Yes I have 2 left and we're handling them as I go along. They're $200 without the handle.

I ended up jumping on a Masakage Yuki, in the end. As I read more of it and a few other suggestions I hadn't been considering, and caught a few demo and review videos, it just seemed, "more right," of those that wouldn't put me on a waiting list (I like the shape of the grind, it's on the heavier side without going towards 7oz, the height will probably help more than hurt, etc.). Then, I saw the Yuki available at another vendor, and went for it, instead of just getting the Tanaka as a starting choice. So much for budgeting :lol:. Willpower? Pffft.
