Out of the box I was really impressed by the fit and finish of the knife. Everything was smooth, no rough edges. The handle is finished nicely. I took it to my leather strop before I did anything and then started cutting. It was probably the sharpest knife I've ever used out of the box. It melted right through onions, tomatoes, apples, whatever I threw at it. I spent the weekend using it to cut pretty much everything. By Sunday I was starting to possibly feel it start to lose its edge just a hair. I took it to my 1000 grit and after just a few passes felt a bur on the whole edge. I finished it with some passes on my 5000 and then the leather and it was hair splitting sharp again. There is something awesome about a knife that sharpens this easily. I just responded instantly to the stone. If you have never used carbon steel before you are in for a treat. It gets sharper than anything I've ever used. I am very careful to wash, and dry and give it a light oil when I put it away. It is my new favorite kitchen knife. The service at CKTGO is incredible. I had the knife two days after ordering. They are really great here. I will be sure to give them more of my business.
