2 people found this review helpfulThis is a great deal. I was looking to start my knife collection and found what I needed in a starter kit right here. The Tojiro DP 210mm is a good knife for the price. I have been using it everyday at the restaurant for the past 2 weeks, and, with a good steel, the edge is still holding strong. The ceramic hone in this kit is finer than what I'm use to. It feels more like it polishes the edge, rather than setting it straight. I've had to use a different one to keep my edge sharp, but the ceramic is great for a polished finishing touch. I haven't taken to the digi-probe and still prefer analog, but I keep it handy in my case. The spoon is really nice. The Tojiro DP petty knife makes for a good sidekick. I can't say much about it because I haven't used it much. I reach for my Mercer paring knife when I need something small, but at work I primarily use the gyuto. Sometimes the 210mm knife makes me feel like I could use something a bit larger, but other times it's exactly what I need. I love the profile. My friend/coworker owns a 240mm MAC Mighty, which is really nice except the fact that the profile levels out and goes completely flat towards the heel. If it had a profile like the Tojiro DP I would be in knife heaven. Great starter package. Well worth the investment.
