Posted By: DaveI've just started getting into Japanese knives and sharpening my own and I am very happy with this purchase. Because I'm relatively new to this space, I cannot vouch for its performance compared to other Japanese knives, but compared to my German knives it absolutely squashes the competition. Funayukis seem very uncommon (they are new to me, anyway) but I don't like Santokus very much and this has a similar length and serves the functions I use it for - which is perfect for most of my work in the kitchen and with a finer tip. The handle is a delight to hold – a nicely polished oval with a very smooth and seamless feel. The weight and feel of the knife leave you feeling confident. The balance is pretty much at the heel which suits my pinch grip just fine. Highly recommend 10/10!
