- verified customerImpressively sharp, right out of the box. Still getting used to it. Not as much rocker from the tip to the heel, as with my german knife. Sort of a long flat section from the heel to middle of the knife (or it's just a much more gradual curve), so it's almost like a nakiri combined with a chef's knife in some ways. If you tend to point with your index finger on top of the blade, rather then pinch, the square edges on top of the blade are still sharp enough to cause discomfort, but not actually cut you. I have a tendency to hold the knife further down on the handle, so I have to consciously choke up on my grip so I'm putting more downward force with my palm, rather than with my fingers pinching the blade, or else the top of the blade tends to rub my index finger raw. Looking forward to getting more of the Tojiro knives.
