      Total Disappointment, January 12, 2023

    The handle is nice, and the finish looks great, but this knife is awful. Out of the box the blade wasn't very sharp, so I used my Shapton 1000 and 2000 to try to clean it up a bit. Certain parts were getting sharp, but others were not. Dropped down to a 320 and worked my way back up. Same thing. Finally looked at it and the blade is wavy, and not straight making it nearly impossible to sharpen correctly. It also varies in thickness along the blade edge.

    And finally - the knife smells AWFUL. Smells like straight sulfur. I tried forcing a patina on it in the hopes that it would help, but nope.

    I really wish I would have looked hard at the knife when I got it.Because now I can't return it. Total waste of money.

    I picked the 52100 small cleaver up along with the 52100 240mm gyuto and I am very happy with it so far. CKTG was very fast to ship, I ordered this product on Dec 21 and got it by Dec 24 which way above and beyond what I was expecting due to this being such a busy time of year.

    The cleaver is very thin and sharp out of the box, sharper than the gyuto was but even that was sharp enough to use. The handle is gorgeous. The hammered finish isn't as prominent as the picture shows but that's mainly due to the kurouchi finish being darker and uniform across the entire blade which isn't a down side to me at all, each blade varies I'm sure. Overall for $75 you really cant go wrong. I have always heard fantastic things CKTG and I regularly see them interact with the community on Reddit providing as much help as they can. I will happily make more purchased through them in the future.
