Its heel section is flat enough I can chop competently yet its tip is swept enough to allow for a decent rock. Speaking of the tip it's thin enough and extended enough to glide through ingredient and dig eyes out of veggies and fruits... but it is in no way fragile. Despite the reactive reputation of its White 2 core this is a low maintenance --- leave it on the board and forget about it (almost) knife.
What else: It sharpens incredibly easily and I've gotten some of my best edges on it. Further, the kurouchi finish is attractive and I get decent food release. I also like the fit and finish. No rough edges on choil or spine out of the box, junction of heel to handle is completely sealed. The transition from ferrule to handle is very well done and nearly without a perceptible seam.
Very happy I picked this knife up and if you're looking for a single knife that can do just about everything and many things very, very well ---- Highly recommended.
