The Watanabes people like are the pro ones, and some people have complained about the F&F overall and of the grinds of the standard series. The Moritaka, some people have complained about the F&F of the grinds too, but one of Moritaka's big advantages is they are a very custom maker who is willing to make something to your exact specifications. If I had to pick out of the options you selected, and at those prices. The Shigefusa, no doubt about it.

Too bad about that tax, the Watanabe Pro nakiri is only $180US and it's super good.
The only problem I have with the Shigefusas are that they take 5-10 months to get.

I have both the Shigefusa Nakiri and Watanabe Pro Nakiri, both in kurouchi.

I almost never reach for the Shigefusa (I've been meaning to sell it). The Watanabe (atleast the pro) is a much better knife. The biggest difference is the geometry.

Watanabe tapers immediately from the spine with a nice high bevel while the Shigefusa tapers really late. The other reason to go to Watanabe is his is taller than the Shigefusa. Being taller makes a nakiri much easier to use.

Both sharpen up well, but overall the nood goes to Watanabe.

I think Shigefusa's kurouchi line, in general, is a bit thick and late tapering. His Kasumi stuff is great, I have is kasumi gyuto, but I'm not fond of his kurouchi stuff.

I recall an earlier thread about a Moritaka cleaver that waved like a flag - a little too thin.

Which is the knife everyone is raving about? And why does an extra 15mm double the price?
Maybe able to help with some Japanese translations.

The more expensive one is from Watanabe's Pro line, and it's blue steel clad with stainless steel instead of white steel clad with low carbon steel as in the Standard line. Plus I've read that Watanabe doesn't make or has problems making high carbon clad in stainless steel longer than 180mm.
