This little beauty is awesome for small fruits, vegetables and chicken breast. Very sharp out of the box and the grantons work like they should!
Beautiful and functional
Very good knife for this price. Good size for general kitchen use by an amateur like me. Delivery was surprisingly fast. Will purchase from Musashihamono again.
I bought this knife for the JP handmade knife experience.
I would rate this knife as a smaller version of a gyuto.
The finishes ar not the smoothest and the blade was not straight but considering it is a cheap knife it's acceptable.
I polished the edge of the spine, as it had a sharp edge that was hurting my finger using pinch grip, and the handle was polished with a fine grain sandpaper and it is much smooth to touch.
It is easy to sharp (I use a King stone 1000 grit, and a leather strop) and you can obtain a very sharp edge.
Regarding the edge retention, needs to be sharpen every couple of uses.
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.
