- verified customerWhat a difference using this for chopping veggies over using a Gyuto or Santoku. The weight of the blade is comfortable in the hand and a huge help in push cutting through fibrous materials without being tiring to operate. All corners are well rounded and there are no hotspots when using in a pinch grip. The black finish is matte and slightly textured to touch, but doesn't inhibit the knife's cutting ability, or cause it to bind when cutting through thick stock. Develops slight surface rust near the edge after multiple uses, but a quick wipe down with Bar Keepers Friend takes it back to looking new. Out of the box edge was serviceable, but a quick pass on high grit stones and strop makes it into a laser.
