Love this knife! Beautiful! It comes with a decent edge but with after sharpening on stones it cuts fish so well. it also easily push cuts newspaper effortlessly when tested! I have no more issues make clean cuts of sashimi and sushi. After using this Yanagiba i realize just how inadequate a European meat slicer is for slicing fish.
I sharpened it once and have used it six times now and there is no loss in edge performance. I think the blue steel will keep and edge well and definitely lessen the number of times i have to sharpen this knife.
Several of my friends have commented on the beauty of the hammered Kurouchi patter and now want one! For the price, performance and beauty of this knife i couldn't be happier!
This is my second knife from Musashi and definitely not my last. The item was delivered to me in Canada in less than a week with no issue. I has some questions about the knife and Musashi contacted the knife maker and had my questions answered to my satisfaction. Very happy with the service from Musashi. Can't ask for more!
Gorgeous knife, fantastic quality and absolute workhorse!
The knife is beautiful and came with a sharp, strong edge. It's feels great in my hand I love showing it to my dinner guests!
Excellent Knives. Beautifully crafted.
I like it. It worth it
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.
