Posted By: Alex VI don't have much to compare this to in the realm of fine Japanese knives but compared to the Shuns and Globals I've handled this knife blows them out of the water. Fit and finish is very nice with a light but comfortable handle and a beautiful blade that I often bind myself just admiring instead of using. I paid for the sharpening service and it is without a doubt the sharpest knife I've ever used. The video on this is absolutely correct that the handle is quite light so the balance is blade forward but I find this couples with the thinner blade to make it very easy to handle. All in all I'm very satisfied with this knife for the price I paid.
