So,this being my fifth Konosuke,I had a good feeling about what I was getting myself in for. It’s not a laser first off,think it clocks in at like 7 or so ounces. Out of the box wasn’t the best oddly enough,but for a really close konosuke box edge I took it to my 1k natural and finished with a leather strop. Really,really close. 0.3
Performance was really good,but this knife is just wanting to be taken to the high grit stones. Feels a lot smoother than #2 while using the polishing stones and it does get sharper and keeps it a little better. Over all a beautiful work horse. And the usual great service from Mark.

I really enjoy this knife. F&F were great really nice looking knife. Great feel to it,the handle is a bit longer then other konosuke’s ive had/used but it really adds a nice balance,out of box edge was good,however i took it through 1k,3,5,10,16k and finished with balsa and boron,and yowzers. Tho pricey I would recomend this knife to anyone that is looking for a great knife0.3

Are you kidding me? This is a beautiful knife,with incredible fit and finish,that works well at everything. The White #1 steel takes an incredible edge,is a joy to sharpen with Jnats,and is also so tough for such a hard steel that I “accidentally” cut through an avocado seed with both a perfectly smooth cut and blade edge. The patina it is developing is a work of art in itself,too. Expensive? That depends on your definition. It is worth every penny.0.3
