At the first use of the knife, the tip broque and the blade was totally deformed so that I had to straighten it again. The blade is soft and it was not sharp at all. It seems to me like a defect but no answer from Musashi after sale. It is really a pity and a shame for the reputation of Japanese metallurgy. Seems to me that this shop is a tourist trap and I just lost 200 000Yen on the 5 knife I bought locally.
I always wanted a japanese knife. This is my first one after countless hours of trying to justify the price for a knife. Until now I had only mid-priced western style knives. But this is surely not the last japanese knife for me.
I was hesitant at first to order from this company because you can't find too much about them, but their online presence made me believe they are legit. And I'm happy that I gave them a chance.
From handle to the tip of the edge this knife is perfect. I feel like I'm holding a masterpiece while cutting my veggies. I hope this knife will serve me well for the coming decades because I sure will take care of it.
Honestly is a pretty fantastic knife. Rounded choil and spine give it a nice, refined feel in the hand. Well balanced for great control. Thin enough with an actual blade length of ~220mm to be a great slicer, like a slightly smaller and taller sujihiki. Unique finish, too, which I think is cool.
With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.
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.
The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.
The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
