Very sharp knife. Nice handle easy to use and holds an edge very well
Excellent knife. Great balance and weight. Very sharp. Extremely good value
This is a really good looking knife. I am glad I went with the Japanese handle (wa) over the standard. One of my favorites. Very sharp out of the box.
Great knife! This is my first Japanese knife,and I’m really happy with it. It’s nice and sharp right out of the box and slices beautifully. Fit and finish seem quite good to my untrained eye—it’s a beautiful blade. It also comes in a very nice presentation box.
The D-handle is designed for right-handed users,but my left-handed wife has no trouble using it.

Fantastic value.comfortable,well balanced and extremely sharp edge right out of the box.would have given it four stars for the slightly cheesy handle but the price far makes up for it
