1 people found this review helpfulAfter watching Steve's review of this knife I decided to get one! I was keen to try a 'white' steel knife as I have 2 'blue' ones. I'm blown away by the build quality of the knife: blade rustic finish/grind/ chiselled kanji plus an awesome handle fit - I love the reverse taper!
The factory edge is pretty good (I have not felt the need to resharpen it) and the hybrid stainless cladding + carbon blade does not seem to need too much care and feeding (less patina development that my 2 blue knives).
The balance is blade heavy, but this seems to be the trend for wa handled knives and works well with this knife design (Now I'm finding when using more neutral yo handled knives that I'm going - oh yes! A western handle! Then having to adapt my grip and cutting style).
Overall, loving this knife!
