- verified customerUnfortunately my experience with the knife so far has been just so-so (it seems like 99% of all review on this knife and others are completely glowing!?). I probably should have paid more attention to the weight and spine thickness before ordering. This is a heavy knife. It does not feel light in the hand. If you like that, great, but that is not why I like Japanese knives. The balance point is REALLY far forward and I would not consider this knife well balanced. You can get used to it, but when I go back to any of my other knives after using this one, they too take some getting used to again. The cutting performance is good, but again the profile is not super thin so while it can make fast work of veggies, it doesn't do well attempting thin cuts. Blade developed an uneven patina extremely fast even though I was quick to wipe down after each use. I'd like to love this knife, it looks great, but isn't what I was hoping for in a few areas.
