Posted By: ThomoFor those who are looking for the perfect all-rounder, this is it. Thin, fast, tall, perfect balance, perfect food release, fantastic fit & finish... the list goes on.
My blade is 180mm with a perfect balance, exactly on the pinch grip. I could not believe the balance when I opened the box I have never had a knife that good!!
The thing is so thin and so sharp it is like the fastest F1 car. You will destroy prep with one of these, it's so light and agile you can go all day with no fatigue.
The only downside is the level of care needed to maintain this knife perfectly. As a result, I now own the stainless clad one as well (it can take more abuse). I use that for all my commercial cookery and keep my original knife for home.
Takeda knives are bad arse... I have five all up and will get more with time.
