Posted By: Jsgillis86Don't let the price fool you, this knife is impressive. After over two years of use it's become increasingly difficult for me to deny the fact that your hard earned coin goes a long, long way with this one. Straight out of the box she outperforms just about any knife in the price bracket and after a full progression she competes with many above. This is a steal of a tough as nails, yo handled laser with a quality distal taper and an extremely compliant edge profile.
My only complaint revolves around edge retention, but she will outlast her German counterparts and so long you know your way around the stones the point is moot.
For what it's worth, I'd put a freshly sharpened FKM in an onion battle with just about any knife, and while she may not have the style that some possess, she gets the job done damn near as well without burning holes in your pockets.
What a damn fine introduction to Japanese cutlery, and astoundingly tough for as thin as she is. Highly recommend.
