- verified customer I like this knife. I've used it for parting poultry, which is what I bought it for, and it really is a great tool for that job. The knife was pretty sharp out of the box, enough so that I have not taken it to a stone yet. The handle is lovely and attached properly. There are a couple minor, rough spots on the steel, namely rough ness on the choil and a tiny nick on the top ridge (mune). This is not unexpected in a hand made knife and minor enough that I feel no need to clean anything up. Typical, Japanese wabi-sabi. The 'black' treatment on the knife seems to wash off rather quick. No matter, if you wash and dry after use. It is beginning to patina nicely. It certainly is bargain priced and deserves a recommendation. I am quite happy with the purchase. Delivery was quick and the knife was well packed.
