The handle looks very good and is comfortable to hold. The blade also looks beautiful and it's very sharp out-of-he-box. After using it for 3 week daily it is still sharp, though it has lost a bit of sharpness. Still cuts trough vegetables smoother than any of the knives I have ever used(i.e. average stainless steel chef knife).
I expected this to be of high quality and it lived up to the expectations, but this level of sharpness has even surpassed them, amazing.
I was pleasantly surprised by the short delivery time, it took 3 days to deliver the knife to Hungary(to the other side of the world).
p.s.: if you cook/like cooking you have to get a knife like this, it will be a joy to use
Yes the knife is that good and my wife and I are already thinking of buying more Musashi knives as gifts to our family just right after we purchased one for ourselves. 5/5.
I ordered 2 knives a Santoku and Gyuto Silver Steel Western brown handle. I placed the order online and received shipment in Australia 3 days later. The packaging and little note that came with the packaging was a nice touch.
The actual knives are fantastic to use, sharp out of the box and truly great looking. They made making dinner an excellent experience and I can't wait to use them over the coming years.
Great knives, quality control may need to be upped.
Good, knife is comfortable, feels good and cuts nicely. Has a nice look on it too
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.
All orders will be shipped directly from Japan to the address you specify.
