- verified customerI am new to Japanese knives. Therefore I cannot compare to other ones. I cook at home.The knife has very attractive finish, very thin behind the edge. It is the first knife I saw that "sings" like my old single edge razor. Everything you slice feels like butter. As far as patina, I am still waiting on it. I also bought a masakage yuki that developed the patina first time I sliced a steak (and it looks amazing), but this one is resistant. I even brushed it with a lemon today and still nothing... Not that it does not look beautiful the way it is, but you know... Have not used it long enough to discuss edge holding, but do you really care??? I have not sharpened it yet but I used the 15$ finishing service and was happy with the result. Between the three knives I ordered, I do not have much hair left on my forearms from playing with them...This is an amazing (but somewhat expensive) piece of art that makes me smile every time I chop a vegetable. In fact, it can be an incentive to eat more veggies since every day I seem to make excuses to chop some... In case you did not know that may make you live longer... Money well spent.Also, very happy doing business with such an amazing owner, company, family... Impeccable service.
