The Kikuichi Elite Carbon knife line is well regarded by professionals for high quality steel and easy re-sharpening. Kikuichi Elite Carbon knives are reactive and require special care. You need to keep the knives dry or else they will quickly oxidize.
The knife is a decent deal for the money. Fit and finish leaves a little to be desired as the handle had some very small gaps where it attached to the tang. Also,the markings on the knife were stamped on rather than engraved which means they’ll disappear with any amount of patina/use. Holds and edge well and takes one very quickly. Blade is flexible (though not like a boning knife).
