Pretty sharp OOB and with 6K finish, sharpness almost rivals Taketa Aogami Nakiri.
Sharp enough to slide through fresh carrot instead of sort of splitting it.
Blade is somewhat delicate which is understandable at this sharpness. While cutting a hard nectarine, the seed in the core was scraped with somewhat moderate pressure. Upon close inspection with magnifying glass on the blade, I noticed there were couple of micro dents (or bends) where the blade scraped the seed. Which was corrected easily with a few run on 1k/6k stone. If it was Aogami steel, like Takeda Nakiri, it would been a chip which would been little more time consuming to fix. Great utility knife and I prefer this over Shun premiere utility knife I ended up returning. Love it!!!
