This is a nice knife, very light and nimble, but I was disappointed in the consistency of the edge grind. The front part of the blade had been roughly ground to an edge and will need some time on a whetstone, to bring it to full sharpness. This should have been picked up at the factory.
Great knife and well made. It’s a gift for my friend’s birthday. Hope she will like it coz I really like it.
Well I ordered this knife at a very strange time in the UK, with movement restrictions across the country as a result of coronavirus infections.
The Japanese part of the delivery operation worked extremely efficiently and the knives ( I was given a paring knife as a gift as well) arrived in the UK after a couple of days - unfortunately it then took a UK delivery firm a week to get them from one end of our country to the other - but no worries.
The knife itself is extremely well balanced. easy to use and extremely sharp. Also it looks fantastically beautiful.
Perfect little knife, a great compromise between thin ground delicate and thick robust. Love working with it in a busy professional environment
The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.
