Posted By: MattJust 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.
