    Perfect introductory Japanese knife. Thin, sharp enough OOTB, doesn’t rust, and you won't feel bad if you make sharpening mistakes as a noobie.

    If you're new to sharpening, I'd recommend you buy 2 and get the finishing/sharpening service done to one of them for a great reference point. I did this on higher end knives after some decent stone time, and it worked out great. Also makes for a GREAT present/stocking stuffer. I might buy a few and shelf them until December haha

    I'm surprised nobody took the plunge and came back to recount their adventures, but holy moly is this guy worth the few bucks it costs. Way thin, well ground, quite decent edge retention, just highly performative in every way. It glides through carrots and it demolishes onions with speed and ease. I make a lot of soups and stews in the winter and value that kind of performance. Probably one of the best values on the site, along with the Tojiro Bolsterless models. Hell, if you're really on the fence I'll buy one for you just to be told I was right. : )

    I've never been a fan of saying anything is good "for the price." It's good—it'll do the job for you—or it's not. This is a good, good knife. It's got the geometry to perform brilliantly and it's got a named steel that is acceptable, yes, for the price. In my experience it stays sharp and performs long enough that you can think of it as a reliable workhorse. It'll glide through carrots and demolish onions for you with no problems. Unquestionable performance. Want better edge retention? Pay more. To me, this is a great value. A beater? Sure! But I love me some beaters. Only you can say how you come down on that question. But if you want to slice up vegetables easily on a budget, jump on it.
