I recently purchase two knives, a pairing knife and a sushi knife. They are both very sharp and have excellent feel and balance. From the front side, both appear to be made with great care. However, when inspecting the back side, both have rough grinding marks at the end of the blades. Does it affect the function of the knife?....Absolutely not. Will it prevent me from purchasing another knife in the future?....Absolutely. The thing is, I don't know anything about making a knife but I am a machinist by trade and when the details that don't matter to function are treated with less care I question the overall quality of the product. In other words, the back of the knife should be finished with as much care as the front and it simply isn't.
Love the feel and look - to be honest I didn’t realise it was a flat blade on one side - is it a right handed or left handed blade ? - it’s obvious I am new to buying Japanese knives …. But love them
Very happy with my purchase. The knife performs perfectly. Also happy to support artisan craftmanship.
Favourite knife really cool.
Very pleased with the knief...shipping was fast...the knief is well balanced and is very sharp a pleasure to use.Will be back for another knief soon.
