- verified customerBought this gyuto because the length seemed perfect to travel with. Fairly sharp OOTB but I put it through a 1k, 3k, to 6k just to see if it was really worth fooling with. Trust me when I tell you I was very surprised and thankful. Edge gets screaming sharp and seems to be holding well after several uses. Slight patina on white core, but nothing on the cladding. Nothing wrong with the blade at all, nice even grinds and slightly weight centered toward the handle.
Only reason I gave it a 4 star rating is because of the typical Tojiro handle and that damn plastic ferrule. Try as I might, I can't get past the plastic on these things. Will have to do something with the handle.
For the money, this knife is a steal. If like me, and you like inexpensive knives that will rust, but yet have good core steel, this knife fills the bill.
