It seems to be quite reactive though as it left a patina on the kurouchi finish, where my thumb was while I was sharpening. The handle is probably exactly what you would expect from this pricepoint, but I've already sanded mine down a bit around the plastic ferrel. The knife is blade heavy but not overly so. It chops through produce like a champ, even before I put a better edge on it. It seems like it is a nice middle of the road edge for cutting technique as I have tried push and rock cutting with no problems. This is my first carbon steel knife from CKTG, but it won't be my last. Want to make all your fellow cooks jealous without breaking the bank? This might just me the one for you.
