3 people found this review helpfulFor a knife like this, with a HANDLE like this, to be $60 theres of course going to be a little work on your end thats just to be expected with pretty much every knife if you want perfectly smooth Fit/Finish.. The blade is nice and thick at the heel with a hair of distal daper all the way (not really but kinda) and thins at the grind for a very sturdy tip that one newer to J-knives wouldn't have to worry about breaking. IF you like the KU finish then i have good news because it actually is fairly well done it seems not to come off from rubbing or wiping it however I don't know how long it will last because I plan to take it off immediately and polish the whole thing! Surprisingly good edge on it too I was pleasantly surprised and id say 5or 6/10 for sure, handle was darker than pictured id say half way between that id say nice medium brown, quite good ferrule/handle junction very, very minimal bumps, better handle finish than my Kohetsu gyuto and Fujiyama blue petty TBH. not sure if all handles will be this nice but if they are than kudos to you!
