Not crazy about the single side sharpening, but only because I am left handed. Beautiful piece of work and craft.

Joseph Reynolds
Absolutely impeccable

The knife is such a work of art. I love the engraved signature, it's really unique. The handle is ergonomic, I have many knives but I always find myself going for this one. It's perfect size to do most jobs, it quickly became my daily driver. The blade's really sharp and because of the design, it's easy to sharpen.

Razor sharp

Made in Japan.
Many knives say German or Japanese in the title, but most of them come from China. This knife is actually made in Japan and is a very high quality. It is THIN and razor sharp. They didnt waste a bunch of money on packaging, it went into the product. Very happy with this knife. It slices through everything without smashing.
The handle isnt excessively weighted and it causes no fatigue. Happy with this item.
I hope my review was helpful to you.

really comfortable and effective knife

I have had a high-end professional carbon steel chefs knife for decades. I never thought I would find another knife of that quality that I liked as well. I use that knife for just about everything from slicing meat to chopping vegetables. It is a really big chefs knife, but effective.This one is smaller. I really like the smaller size. The blade is fantastic. Well-weighted knife. Comfortable to hold and use.I think this knife has taken first place in my kitchen and knocked out the reigning king. This is a really comfortable and effective knife for just about any kitchen task you throw at it. I just peeled and chopped ginger with it. Made quick work of the task. Very happy with this knife. I can easily recommend it for any kitchen.

Beautiful and Razor Sharp

As sharp a knife as I have ever owned. Beautifully crafted. Worth every penny. I am so often disappointed with online purchased knives-not this one. Its a keeper.
