7 people found this review helpfulMy problem was that I had a 120mm petty in VG-10 and a 210 Gyuto in ZDP-189. I love the convenience of the smaller knife but was constantly disappointed with the performance of the VG-10 once it became dull. The ZDP-189 has lasted a year at full performance with no touch-up required but the size wasn't conducive to smaller tasks which I realised make up the bulk of my knife work at home. I needed something with a performance steel at a medium size to be my general purpose knife so I bought the HAP-40 150mm petty.
It's amazing :) I've had it a few weeks now and can tell that it will last just like the ZDP-189. I have to work a little slower at the moment because of how ludicrously sharp it is. I'm worried that I'll lose a finger! Hopefully I can speed up once I get used to the new size.
Fit and finish is flawless and it was beautifully sharp out of the box. The ordering, communication and shipping from CKTG was perfect as well. I did get charged UK customs duty by the shipping company but this was expected so I can't complain.
Overall I am a very happy customer and am now planning another purchase from your wonderful site!
