I think of it as a great compromise between the German classics and the Japanese blades. The blade profile is somewhere between the shallowness of the gyuto and the stout rock ability of the Germans. It is slightly lighter than something like a Henckels but retains some of the heft that German knife users might have come to like. Its western handle is very comfortable but it eliminates the heavy bolster found on older German knives.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this knife as a smooth transition from house knives or Germans into the world of Japanese cutlery. You'll continue using it even after you've become obsessed and have started to buy custom Japanese show-off pieces.
