Posted By: Derek BMy first purchase from this master, and I am so glad I went forward with it. So sharp it can cut without taking it out of the saya. More seriously, the knife takes a wicked edge, and is balanced beautifully. The blade is very stiff which I found helpful when taking care of butchering our Canadian Thanksgiving turkey leftovers. Take great care when using it until you are used to it, as it doesn't take much to run the tip into your hand (as I found out the hard way). The damascus offers a beautiful compliment with the kurouchi cladding. The handle is also of the same finish quality as the blade. Thanks very much for the recommendation, Mark. You were right. I am thoroughly pleased with this knife.
