Posted By: Max SRight off the bat I must say, the description is wrong, the handle is OAK, not ho-wood.
This was the first Tojiro knife I bought, in which I do not feel the need to immediately finish the handle! Unlike the other blades in this class, the ferrule is in-fact wooden! it looks very nice.
The fit n finish is outstanding for 60 bucks, shipped free from mark. Just a fantastic looking and working knife. The blade came perfectly sharp out of the box for me. I did notice that the blade has a micro bevel both on the bevel side, and on the back... I guess this is common from main stream manufacturers.
Tojiro always impressed me, best traditional style Japanese knives for the money!
