The handle on mine is more ovular vertically as opposed to round, which I really like. The height feels great, I can chop up chicken thighs or cilantro with equal "feel good" response from the knife. The choil fits my hand perfectly (typically my middle finger is in the choil with the meat of my hand between the thumb and index wrapped over the spine.) To be clear, this is NOT the sharpest out of the box. But you don't get a $60 knife like this for OOTB sharpness (still sharp though.)
That being said, it sharpens VERY easily. A few minutes on 1000+ grit stone, and more importantly a few minutes on a nice strop, and this knife will shave hair. My only complaint is that (of course) the metal is very reactive, so be prepared to be on top of that. I love to keep a small microfiber towel on hand for constantly wiping it down. Other than that, this beauty is a smokin' hot deal, with top notch aesthetics for my preference.
It's now my go to knife for anytime Ima cookin'!
