Posted By: Brendan R MooreWhoa! Talk about an intense blade! Stunning blade design and handle work. I love all the character this blade brings to my collection. The YS secret steel leaves an interesting blue patina and is aging well. The Kurouchi finish with the different hammer marks is a real statement! This blade comes out of the handle super thick but has a beautiful distal taper. Because of this thickness there can be some wedging. However, the edge on this bad boy is thin! It will fall right through many Ingredients and is a joy to use! One issue I have come across is that this blade is delicate. I have chipped this blade, there are baby deflections in the blade, and general upkeep makes this a semi tricky blade to care for. And also not necessarily a workhorse. If you're looking for a gorgeous and unique blade for your kitchen I would suggest this blade. But I may not take it into the professional world simply because it is delicate.
