Was not prepared for just how sharp this blade is with the sharpening service, and was shocked at how effortlessly is cut through my morning grapefruit. Even a month on without sharpening, this thing will go clean through, including the seeds, and it's like they're not even there. I've cut through pounds and pounds of Ribeye, and it's still as sharp as when I got it.
I bought this because tool steel just sounded better than some proprietary knife blend (ZDP189) that is difficult to sharpen. Turns out, that is correct. Really lives up to the voodoo steel designation. I like the Gihei horse on the blade too, because somehow it always feels like an event to use, even though I use the thing every day. I bought the matching Nakiri, and will say, if you have to money, just do it. You'll be amazed you tolerated anything else before.
