Posted By: Jonathan Thorp-Fairshter3 days from ordering to my door. Fastest shipment from CKTG yet (thanks USPS too amid the covid mess).
First impressions...Crazy sharp OTB. Reminds me of my Kohetsu HAP40 petty. Weight was the really odd part. It feels heavy on the handle side but is still balanced. I'll put it through its paces over the next week and find out if there is user fatigue or any issues with changing technique. I have a ho-bunka that is basically a 190mm version of this knife which is fairly easy to use. Just needed to apply nakiri techinique because of the flatter belly. We'll see where the Tojiro lands.
The only real issue I had was the the choil was really rough. It was not shaped/ground properly and it is almost sharp enough to cut me. Hence the 4 stars. I'll take some sandpaper to smooth it out
