It was a gift to my daughter. She and her husband enjoy cooking together. And they only want dishwasher tolerant kitchen utensils. So I had this impressive knife sent to them to use. And they absolutely love it. They said it is by far the sharpest knife they own.
The Knife………….. is unbelievably gorgeous. Razor sharp, comfortable in hand and beautifully crafted.
The company sells amazing Japanese knives (I have several), but these Urushi lacquer plates are unique and incredibly beautiful. We have two plates and they're so gorgeous we display them as art pieces....
This is a wonderful knife. Well balanced good feel and very sharp. Hopefully will sharpen as well over time. Very good value as well. I have done very expensive Japanese knives, thus one compares pretty well. Great for any kitchen and all purpose use!
It is important for a sushi chef to have a good knife. Very sharp, make cut sashimi a lot easier and faster, highly recommend it.
