Posted By: Varutjust got this thing in the mail right on time for father's day, and all i can say is wow. im pretty new to nice kitchen cutlery and knife sharpening, but i can easily see the difference in quality compared to my other two chef's knives, one being a knock-off sabatier and the other a cheapo brand. this thing came in pretty darn sharp, arm shaving sharp, and is light as can be. waaayy more nimble than my other two knives. it did come in slightly bent to the left from the handle, but i fixed it in literally 10 seconds. that would've been impossible with my sabatier, which still has a curve to it which i have not been able to get out due to the thickness of the blade. i haven't used it yet as i just got back from work, but i almost want to bring it into to work tomorrow before giving it to my dad just to check it out.
long story short, i can tell this thing is going to be a dream to use compared to my other two knives, and i cant wait to get my own gyuto when i feel i have earned it. in the mean while, ill get to use this one on days i work the the pops in his kitchen. as always, very fast shipping and absolutely great value. if i weren't eyeing some nicer gyuto's with Wa handles, i would not hesitate for a second to buy another. especially at the sale price. heck, i might even buy one anyways.
