Initial edge was average but I expect to take any new knife to a stone to put on an edge I want and did that with great ease. Heat treat is great, takes really nice edge and held up well after a session on the board. I was looking for a 210 with a little more heft without losing ability to do fine work and with this tip, if I I pinch up a bit this thing kills. Took out my 240 Kono hd2 to compare while chopping some carrots. The Kono did chop through better but not by much and if I used the upper 1/2 of Mazaki, there was no difference. Being OCD, there was a small edge felt between handle and ferrule and butt of handle was a little smaller then iím used to but I never use a tennis grip and a little sanding took care of handle/ferrule issue. Overall, couldnít be happier with the looks, proportions, balance and performance of this knife. Iíve been leaning towards 210ís lately and this is now my everyday go to knife.
