- verified customerI chose the Kanehide TK, and I have never gotten so much pleasure out of using a knife day in and day out. OOTB sharpness was fine for me, I turned a sheet of paper into confetti and jumped up and down like an idiot. At first I was a little afraid to scuff her up, so I let the edge go for awhile. The moment I couldn't get a bite on a soft tomato I decided to give up on that, and brought her to the stones. WOW! That edge came back and then some. I still cant believe how quickly I can get this knife sharp. It takes little to no effort and it seems like shes a little better for wear each time. The weird bevel on one side is well hidden by my sloppy stone scuffs, and the only discoloration that seems to be sticking is up top at the bolster where my thumb and pointer rest. At this point (6 months of enjoyment) I take her to the stones 2-3 times per month, and occasionally do a little honing on a ceramic rod, despite the fact that I know I ought not.If you want a knife that looks like a Prius and drives like a Tesla, this is it.
