- verified customerThis knife had just come up under Gihei and was surprised to see a ZDP-189. WOW! That is about all I can say. This is a very well made knife and extremely hard metal. OOTB very sharp but I changed the angle to 12.5 degrees on the Wicked Edge and finished off to 0.6mu. AMAZINGLY sharp and with diamond stones did not take that long. I have read that with whetstones it might be a little more difficult to sharpen due to the hardness of the metal. Octagonal handle is large and feels great and very well balanced. All I can say is if you can afford it buy one while you can. ZDP-189 knives are not cheap and this is a very, very well made knife. Thank Mark for bringing this one in. Almost temped to also get the 240 mm.
