I have used this knife only for salads-as of yet. It is well made, does not cost a fortune and it can be used for so many things. I recommend this knife to anyone interested in a good knife for the kitchen.
4I like the style of it, tip is a bit brittle, January 13, 2019

I've been playing with this knife off and on for a few months. I've put it through varying vegetables. It was a little chippy but I put a new edge on it and it's been fine. The tip of the knife however is very brittle. I haven't tipped a knife since i first started going japanese 4 years ago but I tipped this one and I don't even know how. I ground it out and made it a little stronger and I haven't had a problem since. If you buy this knife I'd put your own edge on it first before using it. I like it for a good fun home knife.
Excellent value knife. Blue #2 is one of my favorite knife steels and this is one blade that allows anyone to clearly see why. Beautiful nashiji finish with no flaws, comfortable handle, and retains its edge a long time after sharpening, too. Can easily go a month without sharpening during home use but could use a touch up every few days if you plan on abusing it by processing several pounds of ingredients every day. It is able to take a steep edge. I sharpen mine at around 12 degrees.
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
