- verified customerWhen I first got this knife I was pretty excited. The handle looks OK, but the ferrule does not. It is made of cheap plastic that doors not fit well and had a shape that is uncomfortableThe biggest problem was that thread edge was constantly micro chipping. It was really bad. I felt like I had really made a mistake. After reading about micro chipping I took the edge back by hand. I think the way the knife was sharpen, created heat which destabilized the edge. The knife is definitely Wabi-Sabi. I changed out the handle and was able to cut enough of the edge so that I don't get the chipping. If you are willing to put some attention into the knife it can be a great knife, you should know how to use water stones. I'm happy now. edge is good, and I paid half of what I would past for an AS. It's my daily knife.
