1 people found this review helpfulI bought this as a wedding gift, so I can't speak to it's qualities in use, but the knife is beautiful. I put it on a 5000 grit stone before repackaging and it although it was quite sharp out of the box the tune up was worth it. It's reasonably priced, so giving it away doesn't hurt too much, but I think the thing that makes it most suitable to give as a gift is the choice of metals .The SLD semi-stainless core is hard enough, and knowing that you're not giving someone a knife that may require maintenance than they can/will do, is nice. This knife is a good introduction to quality Japanese knifes - you get the beauty and the edge without having to worry about fighting rust.
