Posted By: WassabiOwned 30 Japanese knives, overall performance is much more than my Takamuras, Kanehides, Hinoura and Macs due to magnificent ZDP steel coupled with a thin yet robust grind.
It sharpens in a few passes for me, maybe because I take it only to just shy of shaving? Perhaps people have trouble getting it scary sharp, but it keeps the same exact edge all day, or really all week so I haven't felt the need to take it further. Edge doesn't bend but instead when it chips it chips evenly as tiny micro serrations that doesn't hurt performance, and that sharpen out easily.
Cladding thins very easily and evenly. Handle is very well glazed and doesn't pick up smells in or require maintenance.
Probably going to keep buying this buying this one over and over unless it becomes too hard to get.
