A small issue but still really nice

I received the knife with a small chip at the tip and i wasn't too happy but it was small enough that it didn't need a huge amount of fixing, after that its perfect, exactly what i wanted.

First Japanese knife

Beautiful sharp knife. I look forward every time I’m about to use it. Also got a knife magnets so it’s always on display.

I'm an ex chef and no just a home cook, bought this knife as I've always loved Japanese kitchen knives. This knife is sharp out of the box and fits in my hand nicely. The only down side I would say is that I would prefer it if the handle was a little heavier and the joining of the tang to the handle was done better. Great knife over all love it.

Product Features

Handmade Forging

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.

Durability

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.

Sharpness

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.

Handle

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.
