This is a sexy little fruit knife. It is my second Yoshikane (out of 3). I now have a Yoshikane sld nakiri, an skd fruit knife, and a v2 suminagashi carbon. I wanted to try all three. In terms of aesthetics it is gorgeous, the handle is smaller in diameter than others and together with the blade geometry is very graceful. Razor sharp right out of box and as with all Yoshikanes is a delight to use. It just feels nicer and performs nicer than other knives. I use mine all the time and have not had to sharpen them yet. Great edge retention. I'm a loyal fan of the brand. They are not only some of the prettiest blades, but also the most high performing. Out of all three lines, the prettiest in my humble opinion are the sld and the v2 Carbon suminagashi. Do yourself a favor and go for it. They are works of art that greatly increase your enjoyment. Buy a hinoki board too. I do have microchips in my nakiri but only because my board is crap. I'll be buying the hinoki which is 100% gentler on the blade.
