3 people found this review helpfulThis is my first J-knife, and as such, I have nothing to compare it to. Save for the horrible shop knives from kitchens, and my uber-dull knives at home. It blows them out of the water. Excellent edge retention so far; I started using it OOTB with no whetstone or stropping, it still passes the tomato test over a week later. The profile of the blade allows for slicing, push/pull, and it even has enough of a belly that you could rock it pretty good. A lot pointier than most bunkas i've seen, NOT a bad thing, the surgical tip allows for delicate tasks. The walnut and pakka wood combined with the nashiji finish give this knife a beautiful rustic appearance. All in all, an excellent knife, I see myself using it a long time. Will update after some whetstone lovin'.
