I was looking for an extremely tall santoku-like blade to mirror one I saw Brad Leone using on It's Alive with Brad, and didn't want to spend a few hundred for the recent Fell Knives Big Boy collaboration.
Comes extremely sharp out of the box. Fit and finish is great for the price, not bad overall. Handle is boxy but fits well in my hand. I recommend scrubbing the forge scale (black part of the blade) with some barkeeper's friend or similar product to remove some of the grime from the forge. Blade itself is nicely thinned out, and handles well for delicate slicing and mincing. Excited to see Daovua's products as they get even better.
