Posted By: JakeI bought this knife because I wanted to sharpen a Ginsan knife. This one was the size of a knife I was replacing, looked pretty, wasn't crazy expensive, was in stock. I expected to like this knife.
I love this knife.
Food release is excellent. This is my go-to for potatoes now. Cutting geometry is excellent. Fit and finish are great. It looks better in person than it does in photos. It's light, thin, and wonderful!
Out of the box, it was sharper than a lot of knives I borrow to sharpen. I sharpened it better, but that's not a con at all. If you don't already sharpen your own knives, you probably don't need it sharper than it comes. If you DO sharpen your own knives, great! This one's really easy to sharpen!
I have not had it long enough to know how well it holds an edge, but I am over the moon with this knife. It is an absolute joy to use.
