The reason I love this knife is that handles more like a miniature chukabocho than your run of the mill nakiri and well balances the arts of brawn, speed and precision without sacrificing too much in any direction.The star here though is the manner in which she releases food. Most everything that I chopped or sliced either laid itself in militarily neat piles beside the blade or maintained it's form as though it had not been processed. It's unreal and flabbergasting to the point that I could chop an onion, leave it on the board afterwards and convince the front of the house staff that I'm a master level martial artist that can disintegrate an onion with a 6" punch. True story.Hell of a knife, and what I believe to be the best introduction to Takeda's artistry.
