Posted By: Guy Louis LassabatereI have had this knife for about four months, so please allow me to share some feed back. For a moment, let's put aside how stunningly attractive this knife is. It's unusual look is what caught my eye. I am not a collector, rather what I purchase must perform. This knife out performs any other knife I have. My other knives are Aogami Super which is a great choice for kitchen knives. However, this was my first purchase of a knife made from Blue #2. What an eye opener this was! The edge glides through anything I have tried to cut. I was a bit concerned about possible wedging but rest assured that is not a problem. No resistance, smooth all the way through the stroke. I was also concerned about product sticking to this blade as it is such a highly polished finish. Again, this has never been a problem. If you use a rocking style, you may have to tone it down a bit so as not to catch the tip as this has very little curve to the cutting edge. So for performance, I'd give six stars if I could. Let's circle back to how this knife looks. At this point I would start to sink in to a fan boy zone so let's just say this is one of the most beautiful knives I have ever seen. When you combine form and function as Aoki Hamono Seisakusho Company has done here you have the best of both worlds. I looked at this knife for about ten months before I ordered it and I am very pleased I did. As always, Mark was a great help answering my questions leading up to my purchase. Just jump in, this knife is a joy to use.
