This is a knife I have loved and used heavily for nearly 20 years. It's 6-inch blade is ideal for 95% of my knife "needs".
The blade is a carbon razor sandwiched by beautifully stamped stainless. So the edge darkens and contrasts against the rest of the silvery blade. But it's the incredible edge that rarely needs attention/sharpening that has so impressed me. It slices through vegetables or meat without resistance.
The handle, for most people who've used my knife, is a perfect size and shape. You can look at the handle and know it's well used but there isn't a chip, split or crack anywhere.
I have a couple other (more expensive) Japanese knives but this is my go-to knife and the one that's used 10-fold to any of the others because it's a size and shape that lends itself to nearly any need.
I couldn't recommend a knife more than this one.

HAVE HAD THIS HOCHO FOR AWHILE NOW. FOR THE PRICE OI CANNOT BE BEAT. WELL MADE, VERY SHARP AND HANDELS WELL. IS NOT A FULL TANG, HAS BEEN VERY DURABLE AND EASY TO RE-SHARPEN. WOULD RECCOMMEND FOR ANY BEGINNER INTO FINE JAPANESE CUTLERY.

I did my research and looked at Henckels, Wusthof, Shun and Hattori. Great knives with a high price tag. I saw some reviews about Dojo and they were all good plus the price was a lot cheaper than the others. The first thing I cut with this knife were lime wedges and WOW! Almost literally like a hot knife through butter. This is my first experience with a high quality knife and I must say I am now a true believer in Japanese cutlery. I think a Kansui Dojo 6.75" is in my near future. I can't comment on durability but this knife is certainly VERY sharp. Its also one of the lowest priced Japanese knives I've seen. Very under rated if you ask me.
