1 people found this review helpfulTransiting from German forged knives set and into the Kurosaki AS, I cant find a better word other than fascinating to describe the experience I have with this knife. Being new to Jknives, I am not going to elaborate too much on the OOTB sharpness, it is able to cut throw 90% of food, including cooked Chinese sausage, and small carrot with ease. What amazed me on this knife is the F&F. The impeccably made octagonal handle, the amazingly, well considered curved choil, in tandem with a slightly blade heavy characteristic strike the sweet spot between balance and agility. IMO, the Kurosaki is not a laser that would features in onion slicing and dicing competition, but it is the versatility, thanks to the grind that makes it shine. It gives me the confidence to go through anything from cabbage, onions, big carrot, daikan, lotus root, and proteins. It can handle neat tiny work, and certainly not afraid to confront dense and thick adversaries if needed, without any hesitation. My Kurosaki in particular, excels in draw cut and short push cut, while it also does quite well in chopping. The core steel is reactive though, it started right at the beginning and it manages to pick up a blue patina over the course of three weeks; that is with constant wipe down on wet and dry towels. Using the Kurosaki AS changes my board habit, not to mention it sharpens my skills. In short, it helps bring back the joy of prepping and makes cooking so much more enjoyable. Of course, it wouldnt be completed without Cody;s handy work. Thank you so much CKTG to bring in some of the finest Echizen crafts, Cheers.
