      Great Ginsanko!, April 1, 2017
    Posted By: Dan - verified customer

    *Home cook/not a pro*Great knife with a great grind and a great core steel. After some years of using a Moritaka and Sukenari, gyutos I wanted something a little heavier and little taller - this one fit the bill and I couldn't be happier. Really like the profile and the way it handles. It's got some meat along the spine but gets quite thin behind the edge. This is my second knife with Ginsan steel and for home cooks wanting a stainless knife, I can't recommend Ginsan enough. It sharpens up easily and will hold it's edge for a very long time. I sharpen every three to four months or so but honestly I could let it go longer. As always, great service and fast shipping from CKTG!

    This workhorse knife is superb. The blade is deathly sharp out the box and holds its edge exceedingly well. The nashiji finish lends a beautiful patina. As a lefty Ill probably need to rub away a bit of the choil, but it is quite comfortable nonetheless.

    This is a beautiful knife. It is clear it is made by hand and not a factory machine. It just has that unique quality. Sharp out of the box. The octagon handle is very comfortable and attached really well. This is definitely a knife worth considering.
