Posted By: John BakerThis is my first Japanese kitchen knife, so I cannot make any meaningful comparisons to other Japanese knives; but moving from a stainless Henckel Santoku to this was like stepping into a different world. I had no idea. This knife is rustic but beautiful. It feels good in the hand and gives a great sense of control when slicing and chopping, which are effortless. The handle is sealed against moisture around the tang, and the ferrule fits well with beautiful coloring. The edge out of the box was good, but after I sharpened it a bit more, it was scary and is holding its edge nicely. What an impressive knife for the price! Shipping from CKTG was fast and uneventful.
