1 people found this review helpfulThe story and the videos got me, but the knife is also pretty awesome.
It's definitely rough looking, and the knife had oxidized on the dark kurouchi finish by the time it had arrived. However, after scrubbing that off with a brillo pad and cleaning up the edge a bit with a 1K stone and polishing it with my 4K and 8Ks, I could care less how it looked. The steel is remarkably light, which makes the knife nimble and precise. The steel takes a better edge than my Tojiro ITK gyuto, and while I've only used it for about 3 weeks, the edge retention seems to be good for my uses at home.
This knife is SHARP and a great shape and size for basic prep work. If I could justify buying another knife, I'd try a few others in the line.
