I expected that it would be and at this price point it's acceptable. I rounded off the front and back of the wood and oiled it, definitely made it more comfortable.. Mine was not very sharp out of the box. But between articles and a couple videos I manged to make it very sharp. At first I was disappointed because no matter how sharp it is it simply sucks for any kind of dicing (potatoes and onions). I have a Tojiro dp petty and while not efficient it will absolutely handle that job. BUT, it's amazing how thin this little knife will slice if you do your part. Overall it's not really a petty in my book. But it's a neat little boning knife that will let you play with single edge sharpening and slicing. Give it a shot, sharpening a single bevel isn't anywhere near as difficult as some make it out to be.
