1 people found this review helpfulthis is my favourite knife, and has replaced my chef's knife AND utility in one go.. did some research on these, and this line of kohetsu is made by tsukahara bros in Seki. I used to take # knives to work. now i take one or two..i make fancy wood-oven pizzas, and my station/oven is in the middle of our dining room next to the bar. needless to say, i need to be economical with counter space. [keep in mind, you don't want to cut anything on the bench you stretch/make zas on, so i'm stuck with the tiny prep bench that runs parallel that is maybe 8-10" deep...} Great line knife that fits just about anywhere. does everything i need it to and more.. so light, you'll crush cases of produce and not feel like youve cut a thing.fit and finish is amazing; pretty sure it's an isaiah schroeder custom handle on these, and there's no ferrule gap. super smooth. for such a flat/thin blade, you can really feel the grind. super sharp out of box. great value. my favourite knife.. my everything. this knife can/will probably replace your nakiri/santoku, gyuto etc.. basically anything double-bevel thats 210mm or under. i honestly dont get why anyone would want a santoku when you could have a bunka...maybe some kurouchi kohetsus in the future?
