Takes a great edge very easily. Has a suprisingly good profile; and is as good as Masamoto for classic,European style pinch grip,rock and glide chopping and feel on the board. 0.3
The handle is comfortable and dressy,but a bit narrow if you wrap your fingers all the way around and/or hold your knive tightly.
I haven’t had the knife long enough to say much about edge holding and durability,but otherwise the edge characteristics are fantastic. You probably can’t get a "V" edge knife any sharper than you can get this.
All I can say is WOW!!! This knife rocks. This is my first major knife purchase I have made and I was quite reluctant to spend this much money on a knife,but once it came in,I don’t regret it one bit. It’s super thin and light weight and it’s edge retention seems to be phenomenal. I have had it for over a month now and have yet to resharpen it (sharpened it when I first got it like all knives) I have been through at least 100 pounds worth of various produce,mostly celery,carrots and onions with a bit of romaine/iceberg and some green onions mixed in. The edge still preforms to this day as well as it did when I took it off the stones. Amazing knife and can’t recommend this one enough.0.3

I couldn’t be happier with my gyuto. I am a line cook,and do extensive prep work. This knife has become my go-to at work,as well as at home. I have yet to find a task it can’t handle.0.3
