3 people found this review helpfulMost of my Japanese knives are quite heavy, so I purchased this one with lightness and handiness in mind. It does not disappoint. It arrived moderately sharp, but I prefer my blades to be razor sharp. A little time with a fine grit Japanese water stone and my new sink bridge turned this blade into a shaver in short order. It comes with an attractive and comfortable rosewood handle that you usually are charged extra for. My wife also prefers it to most of my other heavier knives and her favourable impression certainly helps to justify my obsession with good-quality knives. I would regard this as a very good entry-level knife.
