Posted By: RobI've been using this knife for around two years as my general use slicer in a professional environment and I can't recommend it enough. The FKM line is an ideal line for commercial use and is a still a great choice for the home user. Its fit and finish and production values are quite good, almost on par with the German makers. It's ground thin enough that it manages any task pretty well but is still tough enough to stand up to a little hard use. It sharpens easily, holds its edge pretty well, and can be lightly honed with no ill effects. It has a little bit of flex, great for skinning large fish, but it's just stiff enough to carve beef.
This is not the best sujihiki I've ever used, but dollar for dollar only the Tojiro DP line comes close and this is the better knife. The monosteel FKM feels a bit better on the board and the DP chips a bit more easily.
I like the line so much I've also bought a complimentary gyuto for myself. Two of my coworkers have likewise purchased FKMs after trying mine.
