The handle does have a plastic ferrule, but it's flush enough that it doesn't feel weird to hold in a pinch grip. The handle is also fairly porous and will pick up stuff on your hand. Will probably replace the handle at some point, but it's comfortable enough. The out of the box edge was quite poor, but being White #1 it sharpened really quick and to a scary sharp edge. Once sharpened, it cuts very well, cutting fish and proteins is quite effortless, though food release could be better.
All in all, it's a great knife for the price. F&F and handle what you'd expect at this price range, so no issues there. Steel is fantastic, easy to sharpen, and seems to hold the edge great. Haven't had to sharpen it again, so time will tell there. Can't go wrong if your'e looking for a 240mm sujihiki, only wish they had a 270mm as well.
