1 people found this review helpfulWhat can I say about this knife. Several years ago I shot Mark a note asking about my first Japanese knife in Carbon Steel to start. This is the knife he started me on and I really couldn't be more pleased! Sure I have others now (hey I got the bug) but I still constantly use this particular knife over all the other and more expensive knives.
I also have experimented with this knife to learn about forcing a patina with various methods and rounding the spine (which I highly recommend to make it even more comfortable). But where this knife really shines is how sharp the edge can get with little effort and how long it also keeps that edge.
I am very pleased that Mark recommended this knife to start and I don't hesitate strongly endorsing it for not just as an entry knife but a performer!
