A Sushi Sashimi Chef Knife (Yanagiba) with a thick paper blade cover in a fancy box.
I took a chance on this knife as it is made by a new company. It is very light and well balanced which makes it easy to maneuver. The handle design is shaped nicely to fill the hand. It comes laser sharp and has the build quality of a much more expensive knife. I would buy it again.
