Posted By: Nameless StrangerGeneral feel: 5+
Ease of sharpening: 4+ (the heat treat is legendary, mine took a wicked edge after a few strops on a Suehiro Rika 5000)
Edge retention: 5 (feels like the sharpness lasts forever, perfect edge without micro chipping)
Wedging: 5 (unique profile, almost laser like, Takeda style)
Food stickiness: 4 (diced onions and diced potatoes stick to it, almost nothing else)
Profile: 5 (it's love or hate here)
5/10 OOTB sharpness left much to be desired on my Takeda.
