1 people found this review helpfulBought this knife on a whim looking for a new carbon daily driver I could use on the line and I'm currently breaking down a lot of chicken/duck so a poultry geared knife made sense. Beautiful knife, handle is great I just put a bit of oil on it,but the edge OOTB was horrendous. Somewhat sharp but fairly misgrounded--this was less of a problem than you'd think considering I almost always reshape my knives from the factory edge. This steel cut VERY nicely on the stone and I took it down to 1k almost certainly didn't need to the way it took an edge--I just wanted it to have my own angle on it. After only a 1k, 2k, 4k progression it is razor sharp, easily the sharpest knife in my kit now (I'm a professional chef); I didn't even bother cutting it on to my 8k or 10k stones, it didn't need it. When the say these knives are rustic they are not kidding but, as previously stated, I found the handle in great shape and the kurouchi finish is similar to the other one I have. I love the custom feel of this with the imperfections on the metal and hammer marks. Overall, extremely satisfied and already looking to buy another!
