Posted By: KnightKnightForeverI mean... wow. This knife is bad-a**. I have an Anryu blue super bunka, which was previously my favorite knife. The Yoshikazu Tanaka outperforms it in just about every area. it slices through paper, tomatoes, and onions like they were butter. The weight of the knife makes short work of sturdier veg as well. The fit and finish of the knife is excellent. I love the rounded profile of the choil, and the spine of the knife is eased just enough to be superbly comfortable. The black finish of the steel is incredible and gives the knife instant street cred. The knife is considerably heavier than the bunka, and in a good way. It's not too heavy by any means, but feels much more substantial. The handle is slightly longer as well, which - by the way - the handle is second to none. The 4,000 year old bog oak sourced from Ukraine has so much character I can barely make direct eye contact with it. The contrast of the African Blackwood and light Maple spacer adds even more character to the knife, which is, in a word, perfect. As usual, hats off to a flawless purchase and extremely fast shipping from CKTG. Will buy more soon.
