Posted By: BenI have been collecting knives for quite some time but do not have tons of cash. I've owned the Sun Sora gyuto, Shun classics, a Bob Kramer Shun, and Tojirp DP Gyuto. All these knives were great but felt like better versions of regular knives, sharper and holding an edge longer, but not fundamentally different. This is the first kitchen knife I have purchased that FINALLY feels like a different class of knives. It flies through food with little to know resistance. Do no shy away from the proprietary steel, it's excellent, I've waited to do this review for several months to really get a feel for this knife and all around it is excellent. I purchased this at Chefknivestogos review that this was there preferred over the Misono UX10 which I was looking at. I pulled the trigger on this and it is absolutely a high performing knife. My only complaint is I don't like the printed label on the blade, I would prefer they lazer etched it or stamped it, the ink stands proud of the blade and feels cheap. So my one complaint is ink. Overall fit and finish of this knife is easily 5 stars and for the price I have a hard time thinking of anything that would functionally perform better. I highly highly recommend this knife.
