3 people found this review helpfulThis is my first Japanese knife and first purchase from CKtG! I am a Culinary student, This knife was a present prior to my start. I was able to use it a few weeks in class while my Student Knife Set was on order.
I cut into mirepoix like no one else. Potatoes and carrots where never a problem. OOTB sharpness was extra ordinary! It to a little honing to get it to cut, especially while cutting on poly boards. Now a month in, I use it every night to cook dinner. It's my favorite knife. I've owned other brand names from local retailers, and they don't compare to my Masakage!
Unfortunately, due to health laws, Chef told me I had to take the clear finish off. I used strate acetone, but after a quick wash, I forced a patina using mustard with red wine vinegar added. Not the prettiest job, but it has its own unique look.
Service was excellent! CKtG defenitely have a new life long customer here!
