Posted By: Dan BurgerThis knife is really a fantastic and functional work or art. The handle is stunning. The AS core develops its dark patina and offers a very pleasing contrast to the satin-like finish in the middle of the knife, which pairs perfectly with the more polished finish at the top of the knife.
This knife is capable of obtaining the scary sharp edges that we all covet AS steel for. The edge retention is probably the best of any knife I've used. Without other knives to sharpen in between, you may forget how to sharpen all together.
The one downside to this knife(in my opinion) is that the spine is not rounded even in the slightest which irritates and exacerbates my callous when doing larger than normal amounts of knifework.
With easy-to-care for stainless cladding and about 1cm of AS which is super easy to care for if kept clean and dry when not cutting this knife is a no-brainer for anyone who has the money to spend.
I would absolutely and wholeheartedly recommend this knife to anybody
