      Handles excellently and looks good while doing it!, March 25, 2023
    Posted By: Patrick Vith

    I'm a home cook and used it for pretty much everything over the course of a week: prepping ingredients for curry, slicing and coring apples, heck, even slicing bagels in the morning. My first impression was that the fit and finish were top of the line, and that the knife was way lighter in the hand than expected. The unique pattern gave the knife some artfulness, without detracting from its utility.

    What really stood out to me about this knife were its versatility and nimbleness. I live in a small studio apartment with very little counter space, so I default to using 180mm knives. At 210mm, I was a little worried that using it would be a bit of a clumsy experience. That said, this knife was so light and maneuverable that I didn't feel any extra difficulties navigating its length. And of course, when it came to bigger jobs like cubing a chuck roast for curry, the length was appreciated!

    The edge patina-ed nicely as I was using it, and wasn't so reactive that I felt it would be troublesome using it for long prep days. I didn't get a chance to sharpen it because there wasn't any need-- edge retention and sharpness were fantastic as they were. This knife definitely hit the sweet spot between being a "laser" and a "workhorse."

    I don't have any real negatives about the knife, but in terms of points of improvement, I thought the handle could be better. The D-shape was very comfortable, but the lightness and very basic appearance made me feel like the handle wasn't quite living up to the blade. That said, there might actually be some appeal there for people who prefer very light knives.

    Highly recommended as a primary knife, especially if you are looking for something maneuverable! Fantastic handling, great cooking experience.

      Beautiful Knife, December 5, 2022

    I purchased this as a wedding gift for my brother whose idea of a good knife was a $40 box set from amazon.

    Balance and grip felt great and it looked amazing. In my limited time with the knife, it seemed like a great performer.

      Wow!, September 7, 2022

    Just got this knife in the mail today. I'm a professional cook and I own numerous Global knives, Miyabis, and Wustofs. This is my first hand made Japanese knife. The only thing I've really cut with it so far has been onions (today was my last day on vacation, so I'm going to rock this thing at work tomorrow), but given my experience with my other knives, I can already tell just how awesome this knife is.

    I think the handle is more comfortable than a more traditional wa handle (I do have a DaoVoa or whatever it's called from CKTG with a wa style handle) but neither style is particularly more or less ergonomic to me. In fact, I'd say my Myiabi Artisan knives my favorite handles. Nevertheless, this one has a good handle.

    The pattern hammered into the knife is stunning. I really love it. Plus, I think once the carbon steel portion develops a nice patina, the contrast will be wonderful.

    Overall, I'm really impressed with the quality and ease of use with this knife and I plan to by others from this line.
