Been using this heavily for two months now -- both at home every day and as a personal chef -- and I must say...it's amazing. I maintain the edge with a ceramic hone, and it has not dulled since day one. The blade is extremely light (almost feels ceramic), and I find the 180mm version to be a perfect fit for me. The only "drawback" I can think of is that the edge is very thin (which also makes it cut like a laser), so it can bend or warp easily if used for tasks it was not designed for. Mine did ever-so-slightly during the first week, but was easily fixed at home and now performs as good as new . When tackling hard vegetables or any meat with bones, be sure use a different knife, and this one will last a lifetime.

This thing has a blade that cuts carrots so thin that you can almost see through the slices, makes for translucent food and a delight to use. A very beautiful and very sharp and comfortable knife, this one has no faults whatsoever.
