- verified customerI've purchased 4 knives from this website now and this is still by far my favorite. I've had it for about 5 months and used it in every single meal I've made since then, it's definitely my daily driver. After cooking on average of 2-3 times a week in the past few months, I've only just now thinned it for the first time. Pros:Absolutely gorgeous. This knife is a work of art and looks even better in personComes really sharp. 8/10 sharpness out of the boxVery easy to sharpen and get a laser edge I like how tall it is, great for scooping up all those veggies you just chopped upVery flat bladeVery thinGreat weight, not crazy heavy, not light Balance point encourages you to push cut or chop straight downCons:I haven't used any sort of oil on the handle (My bad, not the knife's fault) and it's definitely stained. It's a little less polished of a handle than it looks in the pictures and will definitely get some stains just from your hands if you don't oil it. Doesn't seem to hold razor sharpness for long. I use a wooden cutting board, and I sharpen it down to a 1500 grit shapton stone. It might hold longer if I finished with a 3000 or so. I probably sharpen it every 3 uses (Just to keep it razor sharp. It's still pretty sharp after like 6 uses or more) No other complaints! Also, since it takes an edge so quickly it doesn't bother me to sharpen it often. We're talking like 10 minutes of work everytime. Mostly just on the 1500, sometimes using a 300 first.
