      Edge towards the heel wasn't flat, a bit of a pain to sharpen. But overall nice for the price., August 4, 2021
    Posted By: Ryan Barrett

    I got this as a gift for my brother. OOTB sharpness was pretty good, however, the knife arrived with a noticeable gap in the edge towards the heel. It wasn't too bad since it was easy to fix on a coarser grit stone. But after that, the knife was a pain to sharpen.

    Every time I got to a finer stone, the edge would just get tiny chips throughout instead of developing a burr. I had to sharpen at a higher angle than normal to get it to not chip and spent more time stropping than normal to get a good edge on it. It has a nice edge now but it's not perfect, we'll see how it holds up over time.

    Fit and finish is nice however at this price rance I think my Kajiwara Blue #2 Ko Bocho is all around much better.

      Sleeper blade. , March 5, 2019

    It isn't the prettiest. It doesn't have a wonderful handle. It's rough around the edges.

    BUT...

    Everything before the but doesn't matter. This knife takes a beautiful edge. It's light, precise, and flickable. The handle and rough edges can be smoothed out with elbow grease. A little acid treatment brings out a wonderful bronze patina that protects the blade. Simply put, this knife is a bargain gem because all of the value has been put into the steel... it takes and holds an exceptional edge.
