- verified customerI have always used German style knives but always loved the Japanese style, but price and reading on how specialized they were I couldnt see spending the $$. when I found the youtube videos for this site reviewing knives, I finally felt I could get a Japanese style knife w/o taking out a mortgage. I tend to debone a lot of chicken so I can use the bones for stock later so I went with this style knife. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER! the video gave the sharpness of this blade a 5/6 out of 10, if this is accurate, I dont want to know what a 10 is. this thing is crazy sharp out of the box! the look and feel is great (IMO). I would say "for the price" this knife is awesome, but I have nothing to compare it to. that being said, comparing to all the knives I do own, this is an amazing value and would feel the same if I paid double the amount. I cant wait to purchase my next Japanese style knife. oh, I also bought some of the oil that you are suppose to use for carbon steel blades to ensure this knife lasts me a lifetime. a couple of drops after use and cleaning and I hang it back up, easy peasy.
if you're unsure of getting a Japanese style blade, dont be!
