Ahhhh,it cuts like a dream. Freshly sharpened the edge is fantastic.0.3
Light as a feather and very nimble.
Blade is very thin and flexes a little.
Kuro-Uchi might not be for everyone but is said to contain the soul of hte knife.

Like all Takeda knives the Banno Petit is simply outstanding. The workmanship is elegant in its simplicity. As starters it is fantastically light - 2oz - and comes razor sharp. It is a favorite for smaller jobs. 0.3

This is the Takeda Knife that convinced my wife that I wasn’t silly for buying expensive knives. She can’t put it down and uses it for everything. Perfect for fruits and vegetables and all around small knife work. It is a must for your Takeda collection. I initially wanted a really short one (10cm or less),but 13-15 cm is perfect for this knife.0.3

This is a great small utility knife for Vegetable Preperation. Being a busy chef I use it everyday. I use the Takeda handheld sharpening stone on it maybe once a fortnight(do not use a steel)for maybe 10 minutes.I have had it for over a year and it is still razor sharp and a pleasure to use. Can be a issue with the carbon oxidation if not cleaned and thoroughly dried after each use. Awsome knive!! 0.3

Unbelievable knife,thin,ultra light,and the sharpest I’ve ever used. Takeda falls through green peppers,tomatoes,even yams. For prep of vegetables,fruits you can not do better then these knives. And a pleasure to use.0.3

Almost weightless! 0.3
These are easy to sharpen since the blade road angle is to the very edge this makes for a good thin geometry and will allow people with low sharpening skills to sharpen them.
There is something almost organic about such a knife as compared to mass produced knives . Well worth the money!
