- verified customerReceived within 36 hours of order, as I have experienced previously (means my aogami super laser should be here tomorrow...) this little knife is going to be an absolute workhorse. Sharp ootb, nice tall blade, no fear of smashing garlic here. Tip is fine enough for serious mincing, great continuous curve on the blade for pull cutting, and chopping, beautiful with the darker handle and blade steel. Kanji looks great in the light, and balance is right at the blade end of the choil. The blade is STOUT, this 120mm petty feels twice as heavy as my 150mm petty, its even heavier than my 6.5 Shun Premier utility. The point on the blade is extremely sharp and distal taper is continuous throughout the blade. The convex grind is well pronounced, and the knife is thick enough that it will wedge in onions. That is a good thing for a working knife. It's very hard to find such a heavy blade in such a short knife. Crush to peel, but still sharp and short enough to provide great precision when mincing. Awesome knife. Great looking, and incredibly functional. The german parer it is going to replace has seen little use in the last few years, but I can already tell this thing is going to be a favorite.
