GCA9P nakiri is listed in description but when I actually try to order, it’s not selectable. In fact, I think a bunch is missing from the list.

How come the A6P 7” Vegetable Cleaver shows 67 layer in the description but 3 layer when you go to purchase it?

I have the 6.5” multipurpose and it doesn’t have the same sharpness anymore. What sharpening techniques can be used for it?

The TGA9P 101-layer nakiri is described in the drop as having a VG10 core. That is incorrect . The core steel is 1.1425. You can see it embossed on the side of the blade in one of the images.

Why does the A6P - 7" Vegetable Cleaver - Pakkawood - VG-10 3 Layer High Carbon Steel cost $47 more than the A4T - 7" Veggie Cleaver - TPR - VG-10 3 Layer High Carbon Steel? For the other knives here, the pakkawood versions don't cost $47 more than the TPR versions. Furthermore, the photo of the A6P seems to show Damascus steel; and in the Specs listing, the A6P is said to have a TPR handle. Something is wrong here.

You're welcome. The description of the A6P now says "TPR" like it should; however, the photo still shows a wooden handle.

Thanks, I got it corrected. It is damascus and the photo is right that the handle is pakkawood. I had it mixed up with TPR .Now the description should match the photo. Sorry for the back and forth. The handle+the damascus blade is the reason for the higher price.

A bit more on amazon, but free shipping and returns. Massdrop isn’t as flexible

I own the 101-layer damascus nakiri, which is available in this drop, but the specs don't provide any details. For the record, that nakiri has a 1.1425 German steel core. (It's printed on the left side of the blade.) That steel is very similar to 440C. Zhen claim a hardness of 62 HRC, which is unusually high for that steel (but achievable with careful tempering). The knife is very sharp out of the box, no issues. Fit and finishing are OK, but not great. The rivets stick out just a fraction above the surface of the wood, as do the bolsters; you can just feel a slight step up from the wood to the metal. The knife has a full tang, and the wood for the handle is attached to it in two halves. There are small gaps on my knife where the wood meets the bolster (on one side only), Because of the full-tang construction, and because the blade is not all that thin (2.4 mm near the bolster, 2.2 mm near the tip), the knife is heavy for a Japanese-style nakiri: exactly 250 g. For comparison, another nakiri that I own, a Sakai Takayuki 165 mm with AUS-10 hammered damascus blade and rosewood Wa handle, weighs 146 g and can be bought for the same price. If you don't mind a heavy knife, and if your are not anal about minor fit and finishing flaws, the damascus nakiri is good value. But be prepared to use your muscles when using it. I definitely wouldn't recommend it for extended prep sessions.

So I went to order one and the shipping is $3.50 then I went to add another to my order and shipping went up to $7.75 for two. That seems weird and wrong. If anything it should be $7 and most places would give you a discount on shipping for a multiple knife order to encourage more sales. So I'm getting just one knife and if I decide to get another I'll put in a separate order to save on shipping.

That's funny, if I order one the shipping is $8.25 (to Australia) but if I add another order it only rises by $3.50. As I keep adding orders the shipping goes up either $3.50 or $3.75 for each order.
I assume you're in the US? The good news is that if you add a third order the shipping doesn't increase at all, and a fourth only increases it by $1. Keep adding orders and it increases by between $0 and $1 each time. So it's just that 2nd order that triggers a big jump in the shipping price.
Of course that doesn't help you much if you only wanted 2 knives :)

Right. I did want two but decided to just get one. And I am in the US. Wish I was in Australia. I visited Perth and Adelaide in 1997 and in 1999 , the people were awesome and the country is beautiful.

As someone who cooks with a lot of vegetables, I am wondering what you guys think about the Veggie knife versus the Nakiri. All I've got in my kitchen right now is a Santoku, a Chef's Knife, a pairing knife, and a bread knife. I pretty much use the Santoku and pairing knife for everything right now, but it'd be great to make chopping veggies a bit easier. Thanks.

Thanks for the advice! I agree about those scalloped hollows, my santoku has them and they don't seem to prevent much.

I have their Nakiri in 3-layer/pakkawood. It doesn't feel like a chopper to me, more like a slicer, but a good one at that. I'd think you'd want something with more weight and a wider blade to guide through the stroke for chopping, but it's not a technique I use very often.
