And not to take away from how good it is regardless of price. this knife is a great general use petty/utility knife. the star here is the steel, vg-10 takes a crazy sharp edge, holds it well, and is easy to sharpen on top of all that. it is in that sweet spot for hardness, so you can even steel it on a something like an idahone or other ceramic hone and it will get back to hair-popping sharp in a swipe or two, if done correctly.
fit and finish is okay - i hear some people have issues with quality control with tojiro knives. mine had a slight overgrind towards the heel. but it is a pretty easy fix and can honestly be overlooked for the price and value. especially considering how good everything else is.
i would give it a 4.5 if i could, but ill just go with 5, since i think this is a great buy. oh, i also have the santoku and the petty in the DP line if that says anything about how much i love this line and the value you get with it. they are just great workhorses that you can rough up and use for hard tasks and not really think twice about it - the way a knife should be used.
