Posted By: John L WeissI purchased the Kato Nashiji Suminagashi Gyuto one year ago; mine is the 270mm version, so it is more than an inch longer than the 240mm pictured here. Having never spent this much money on a knife, I was a bit hesitant to click "Buy", but I did. Now, one year later, I can only say that the knife is FAR superior to what I expected in all ways - it was a GREAT purchase! The blade was razor sharp out of the box. I cannot comment on how hard/easy it is to sharpen, as I STILL HAVE NOT HAD TO SHARPEN IT!!! After a year, it still has it's edge! I can cleanly slice through a large beef tenderloin with a single gentle stroke. It works wonders on large pieces of meat and delicate fish alike. It is much lighter than I anticipated, so it is quite easy to use. We love to entertain and I'm an adventurous cook, so I use this a lot. Quite simply, this is great value for the price, and I'm a VERY happy customer.
