Posted By: Julian AdamaitisI gave another similar Santoku a 5 star review, but after buying this one I should have given that one only 4 stars at best. I've been using this knife four months now and it is my by far my favorite. It's hard to explain why, but feels like an extension of my hand. I like the short length and the seven sided handle is genius since a point goes where your knuckles go and a flat spot where your thumb goes. The cut out makes a pinch grip very comfortable but I find ANY type of grip works perfectly. I just re-sharpened it. It took an edge quite easily and I am now reminded of just how scary sharp it came out of the box with a finish sharpening by Mark. Coincidentally my second sharpest knife is also a Kobayashi. This is a great company. The only thing that isn't 100% perfect (for me) about this knife is I would have liked a blade slightly better suited for rocking. This has a little curve to it, and you can do some rocking, but really is more suited for chopping.
