- verified customerI’ve used this knife for several months. OOTB, sharpness was 5/10 and a short session on the stones and strop brought it up to a very good sharpness I expect from Aogami #2 blades. Chopping, push/pull slicing, rocking were very good, as well as the 2-3 inches of tip ( after thinning and polishing the tip) for soft veggies/fruits.Looking forward to using it on melons and squash from the garden, when in season. It was used a few times on roasts and fowl with good results. Maintenance was easy with a few strokes on a double sided strop and the whole blade has developed a nice patina from regular use. One star was deducted as this knife deserves a much better finished handle than this for the price paid. Using a jewellers loupe to check the blade edge, I did not see any micro chipping.after use, but before stropping or sharpening. I like this knife as part of my regular cutlery rotation. Thank you CKTG!
