I am a young chef and this is my first ‘proper’ knife I bought myself. The website was informative and easy to navigate, helping me greatly in deciding which was the best product for me. Delivery was swift and I could not be more pleased with the product upon arrival. The knife is everything promised and more, would definitely recommend to anyone looking in the market
Santoku Silver Steel #3 Nashiji Western Handle 180mm
The Nashiji blade design is really beautiful and looks good. As arrived there was a relatively strong black line between the center silver steel #3 and the surrounding layer. I managed to polish it away with some efforts, which improved the appearance. Also the blade got nicely sharp by using a #6000 wetstone.
After having used the knife for 3 weeks I found the Silver Steel #3 didn’t hold the edge so well and became dull. This is a kind of disappointment, since I had high expectations of this steel. It’s also not so easy to sharpen, because the blade would form a burr at the edge, so only low-pressure and more patience would work.
The western handle is nicely rounded, but appears bulky, probably 2-3mm too high. The knife is still comfortable to hold, so the comment rather refers to aesthetics.
Great, I Love the Knife.
