- verified customerI got this as an upgrade to an old Wusthoff santoku. I wanted a santoku that has more hand room and an extra bit of pretty, without busting the budget. This knife is handsome, light and fairly thin as you'd expect from a Japanese knife, and very sharp out of the box. I've only been using it a few weeks so I can't say much about how it keeps an edge. The extra hand room is nice (taller than my Wusthoff).
The one disappointment is that the bolster is a wrap-around piece of metal, not an integral part of the blade like on my Wusthoff or Shun. As such, there are tiny gaps between the blade and bolster. It's not a big practical or aesthetic problem, but detracts a bit from the overall finish. Well, at this price, you can't have everything.
