- verified customerThis is a very nice knife. Excellent fit and finish - a work of art in its own right. I have yet to sharpen it, the factory edge is very good, quite a lot of bite, but does wedge a bit on tougher vegetables. I have another Harukaze knife that I have sharpened on 8000 grit Naniwa at 11 degrees (per side) and stropped on Dialux white and with this edge it does not wedge (so far). So suspect similar sharpening will fix this knife too. I like the heft and balance - I'd say it is ideal (for me obviously, these things are personal). So far this is my favourite knife! No issues with the carbon steel edge - but it is early days yet, I am new to using this type of steel - I have yet to decide if I am gonna let it develop a patina or clean/scrub it after every use.
