|Excellent entry level deba |

This knife seemed to good to be true given the price, but once I started using it I was blown away. It is definitely entry level in terms of fit and finish but the handle is surprisingly comfortable and well finished. The blade performs beautifully as expected from White #2 that has been heat treated well.
I have no complaints but only awarded four stars because the finish isn't uniform and had some minor inconsistencies.
|Beautiful knife |

I bought this because I wanted a cheaper knife so that I wouldn't be tempted to use my expensive Gyuto when breaking up chicken and poultry. This knife is a hatchet with a beautiful edge. It cuts raw meat better than any knife I've ever used. There is only one down side... It doesn't fit in my knife block! The spine is double the thickness of the widest slot. I'm going to have to find a way to store it safely. Then again, the price makes up for the bother. What a beautiful piece of steel!
