This knife is just incredible I first ordered the nakiri version and the edge retention was just so phenomenal i just had to order the 240mm version, it lasted 3 weeks without having to hone it on my ceramic. In my opinion better than my $600 Takamura. This is the knife of the future guys. Even at rockwell 66 this knife doesn't chip 0.3

I've only had this one a week, but I'm already very impressed. I've banged it on the board a little and it is apparent that the edge on this knife just will not roll. 0.3
It's a fairly heavy knife, and quite stiff. I think I understand why Mark went with a western handle out of the gate - this is not a delicate knife. On the other hand it is very thin - thinner, I'm surprised to see, than my Moritaka 210 gyuto.
I think this would be great for anyone who wanted an all-purpose knife that doesn't have to be babied, and that takes and keeps a super-sharp edge without having to be sharpened too frequently. Which is exactly what I wanted, and got!
