3 people found this review helpfulI bought this to be used as a basic travelling cooks kit with basic cutlery, honing rod and other appropriate items to be added and removed as a situation requires. The bag has enough slots for this and should last a while with good care. The Yahiko VG10 240mm gyuto serves as a good workhorse knife, easily sharpened on oneís stones and edge maintained with the included honing rod. I did do some work on the top 2-3 inches of the tip to get better tip slicing. The wooden saya is nice, Iwould recommend rubbing a beeswax/mineral oil mix on it as well as the wooden knife handle for maintenance as well as to reduce future discoloration on both. The plating spoon is a very useful tool and I would recommend getting the slotted version of this as well. This set is excellent value for money spent! Thanks to CKTG!
