- verified customerI am so pleased with this knife. I am not a pro by any stretch but I certainly appreciate having access to the craftsmanship of a third generation blacksmith at the height of his career. Given the reasonable price, there is so much quality throughout. The Aogami #2 steel; the edge taper seems to start at the spine and and taper in a flat decent to the edge, giving a ferocious edge. The length is just right for my smallish cutting board and the flat profile is perfect for chopping/ slicing vegetables. The handle and ferrule are well made and I love the look of the rosewood color and karouchi finish.Yes, the exposed blade area is reactive with food, but I don't care. I enjoy using the blend of artistry and craftsmanship.
