- verified customerThis is my second knife from Takeda and my first in the AS series. As a working professional in a very humid environment the stainless clading is a huge improvement. The knife blade is everything you could ask for in a "laser". The handle on strait, smooth and well sealed. I rate this knife 4 out of 5 because I feel the blade is slightly blade heavy requiring a slightly more liberal pinch grip that with my other knives. This particular blades black hammer finish was not as contrasting as my last one (lucky of the draw with hand forged) but where the metal showed through on the iron clad knife I had to scrub the finish off anyways combating rust so I actually slightly appreciate the heavier coating on this knife.
