Posted By: GarchtotoThis is the first Katayama knife I've had the good fortune of using and it's just amazing. Not only in appearance, but in performance. The finish is sandblasted and polished to remove a bit of the soft cladding. This gives the Damascus finish a tangible texture that reminds me of aged wood or a topographic map. Really cool unique finish. But the performance on this is out of this world. No joke, the dexterity in hand is there, the sharpness OOTB is there, the knife is just a pleasure to use. It reminds me of my first time using a real Japanese knife and just saying "wow"! Will definitely be on the look out for other Katayama sans knives.
