Posted By: Gregory St PeterThere are so many good things to say about this knife, I don't know where to start. The performance in one word is nimble. Due to having larger hands I love the height on the blade itself, and with tip on the blade it is much easier to get into more detailed knife cuts. Having a knife that I can bulk chop onions or easily get a proper 1/16" fine brunoise is amazing. The OTB edge was nice, it's obvious though that with a little love on a stone that it will be razor sharpe. The fit and finish is gorgeous and really well made.
My major critique is that for the size of the blade the handle feels a touch small, not to the point of feeling unbalanced, but maybe not what I was expecting. With that being said, there isn't much else that I could say negatively about this knife.
Overall, after getting to know this knife a bit I look forward to many years of use, I have been a fan of nakiris and cleavers for years and I am glad to have found what seems like the perfect marriage of the two styles of knives.
