Posted By: Wesley MontoyaMy previous santoku was a brick, 11.7oz. As a daily driver it was a lot. I only spent as much I did on this one because it was advertised at 3.8oz. When it arrived I immediately noticed it was thicker, and heavier than advertised. I understand there is some margin of error in handcrafted items. But it was 4.45oz. I was not happy. I could have saved 70$+ to find a knife with the same steel and lower weight.
Weight aside, it takes on an extremely sharp edge, but takes quiet a bit more work on the stones than my softer stones. Overall, the quality is there, but the value is not.
