- verified customerThis knife is a great package - great performance, materials of construction, and finish. The Aogami # 2 steel cuts really well, and the blade geometry gives a nice combination of solidity and razor-like cutting.
The finish of the steels is immaculate, and the rosewood/ebony handle both looks great and feels great in the hand. It has a really nice classic touch in the finish of the knife - the point where the tang of the blade slides into the recess of the handle has a copper spacer - looks really cool. However, this same joint is the one issue that has caused me to deduct a star, as the fit in my knife is not super-tight, hence leaving a gap where dirt or food could accumulate. I'm sure this will soon be addressed by the Knife-smith, as otherwise it is a brilliant product.
