- verified customerReally nice knife.
Thin grind, hard steel and well balanced. What more could one want?
It is also light and the out-of-the-box edge is respectable.
(didn't stop me from refining the edge on my leather strops though; achieved shaving sharpness with just a few strokes)
All in all i think that not many other Santokus in this price category can go toe-to-toe with this Kohetsu and live to tell the tale.
Blade angle seems to be below the 15Â° that so many Richmond knives have. Maybe 11Â° or 12Â° but this is only a rough estimate.
