Light weight, well balanced, very nimble, comfortable handle, sharpens easily (even without proper whetstones), will take a great edge, 70/30 bevel makes it seem even sharper.
Fit and finish is very good but not perfect.
A definite improvement in overall feel, sharpness, and ability to keep that sharpness compared to my previous western knives.
If you have decent knife skills this knife will allow you to be much faster than the heavy western chefs knives you may be used to.
Overall very happy with the purchase as I was looking for a true value introduction to Japanese knives, and can only imagine what the knives twice this price are like.
