Posted By: MarkI recently bought this knife as a gift and so my review is not based on use but the evident quality of the knife out of the box hence only 4 stars not 5 because I haven't actually used the blade. It is quite simply stunning. The ootb edge while improvable was very good and more than adequate for those not too fussed about sharpening before initial use. The etched Damascus cladding is every bit as spectacular as the photos and video on the website. In hand balance was, for me at least, just about perfect at the pinch point and fit and finish way ahead of some other far more expensive knives. I now covet the larger version and unashamedly wish I had been buying for myself! And as usual service from CKTG was prompt, efficient and excellent.
