Posted By: Ray MastersSo is this a knife or a work of art...or both? Obviously it's both. Boy is this thing built. It is easily the heaviest blade I have ever used relative to it's size. But it's a deba so it should be stout. Out of the box the edge was OK...but given some time on the stones it came to life. I cannot believe a blade this chunky can perform with such delicacy.
I cut up some pretty big fish sometimes and it holds its edge time after time.
As for the construction. This is hands down the most beautiful knife I own. The fit and finish are absolutely perfect. The handle is a thing of beauty. These are rare blades made more so due to Mr. Doi's retirement. I intend to purchase another variety as soon as I get the chance.
