- verified customerI wrought a more detail review, but it got eaten by the server and wasted my time. So I will make this one short and sweet, but hopefully capture the essence. For $99 dollars you can't miss with this knife. It came nice and sharp. the intial edge seemed a hair chippy. I had some minor micro chips, but I also cut some candied peanuts with it. After the initial sharpening I never had any issues. I used it as a line knife for about a year and love it. I will say it initially reacted quite strongly. It is definetly not stainless, and I would hope someone would not expect it to be. I had never had a semi stainless and kind of thought it would be the same. For this particular knife it wasn't. Initially I cut garlic and onions. It fumed tremendously. It turned a blotchy gray with specs of black. It even discolored some of the first onions. I washed the knife and put it in my bag. I never had any reaction after that. I used it on the line sometimes leaving it moist. I never had any issues with rust or problems. It didn't shine or shimmer, but it was a heck of a cutter. I sold it to upgrade and made somebody very happy. It cut somethings better than my new knife, like the end of a brussell sprout. I could just flick chop it with this knife. For a home used I would highly recommend it. For a pro on budget I would also highly recommend it. It sharpens well and is easy to touch up. You will have to upkeep it more often, but that is to be expected with this heat treat. I wouldn't even think of getting something like a shun classic, global, or even a tojiro over this knife. Nevermind about the short and sweet part.
