Harukaze AS Morado Bunka 170mm is a really good knife at an excellent price with and excellent handle using Rosewood. It's not easy to find a knife using AS edge steel at this price and finish level. I highly recommend this one.

      Good fit and finish, not so great edge geometry , January 26, 2022
    Posted By: Ryan R

    The fit and finish on this blade is nice. Chefknivestogo got it to me quickly so no complaints there. Very sharp OOTB. I'm not so thrilled with how thick it is behind the edge though. Both directly behind the edge and the primary grind. I have plenty of western knives and much cheaper Japanese knives that have better edge geometry. Even if the steel is excellent I don't like feeling like I have to thin a knife immediately upon receiving it. If you're used to Anryu or Kato knives etc. this knife definitely isn't going to do it for you. It also has zero distal taper and it doesn't have the sturdiest feel due to how thin the tang is left. I feel like I'm left with a knife that has sturdy edge geometry but also a little bit of a flimsy tang. I can't see myself picking this up unless I feel whatever I'm cutting may damage one of my knives that actually has good cutting geometry. If you're looking for a pretty knife that doesn't cut all that well go ahead and pick this knife up. If you're looking for performance this isn't your knife. Again no complaints with Chefknivestogo but I'm probably not going to be purchasing another Harukaze knife based on this example

    This is now my favorite kitchen knife. I love the traditional finish. Extremely sharp edge out of the box. Handle is a good size/diameter for med. sized hands. Haven't used it enough to assess edge retention or ease of sharpening. Anyone in the market for a used 8" Henkel chef knife (I don't see myself using it anymore)?

    This knife is fantastic. Very sharp and the fit and finish rival more expensive blades. Very satisfied with this purchase.
