I don't need to rehash all the wonderful features but I will mention how I store this knife. I certainly recommend that after use and cleaning it be stored on a magnetic strip with nothing touching the edge. This will insure proper air circulation for drying. I also purchased the saya for storage and transporting. I used some mineral oil on the saya to match the look of the rosewood handle. Then, instead of putting it in a draw, I came up with a way to mount the knife and saya on the side of an existing knife block using plastic adhesive tool hooks.See image at link:https://www.flickr.com/photos/coney_island_guy/15022874265/sizes/lI bought the Takeda sharpening stone for this knife, and use a strop for occasional touch-ups after use. Very easy to follow the angle of the blade.This knife is well worth the cost, and will be treasured for generations to come.
