Knives came in a nice box, will keep them in that box so they don't get abused and also they are VERY SHARP.
I've been cooking since I was about 10 years old, I cooked professionally for a about 15 years and I really wish I would have found these knives sooner, it would have been a game changer for me.
I sliced through an onion like it was like a "hot knife through butter " was like WOW..paradigm shift, very little resistance which would help with fatigue.
Second test I took the knife second biggest knife and used it to cut and trim a lamb that I had butchered, I was able to prepare beautiful stew meat chunks and it was so easy to do the trimming, much less waste when you can cut right next to the sinew, kinda like a Sushi chef does when they are trimming fish. Very light weight to hold and ergonomic and I have very large hands. I would not use the knife to debone as I think it would damage the blade, it's seems a bit delicate and could bend possibly...but this is not what the knife is designed to do so no worries there.
I found a new place to purchase knives going forward and I'm going to replace and throw away many old crappy knives in my collection and get done to having just a few good ones.
Thanks for a great connection to Japan for quality knives :)
