Posted By: cjdiltsWon't give this knife a four star review because the few flaws are based on my preferences and I knew what I was getting with this knife thanks to Steve and his awesome videos.
This knife is what it is. Nothing flashy, thin or overly unique. If I was going to pick a word to describe this knife I would say homely. She's not going to turn heads but she has a good soul and if you show her a little affection she won't let you down.
This knife is big, thick and stout. Thin enough at the tip and behind the edge to perform beyond my initial expectations. Once I put it through some food I was very impressed. I bought this mainly for whole animal butchery this summer. The primals I've broke down so far have been easy and the knife has held up perfectly. 10 pounds brunoise onions easy. Carrots were a little wedgy but to be expected.
My critiques are basic. I wish the knife was more blade heavy but with the yo handle thats to be expected and I would have liked maybe some embossed kanji. Screened on reminds me of my shun days and thanks to the great things Mark and Sue have offered us here I am so glad those days are behind me and with all they've done for me at CKTG I only wish I had more money to give them. For those of you looking to try a low maintenance carbon workhorse knife you shouldn't look further. Thanks again CKTG.
