I had been shopping around for a Nakiri under $100. This one looked the best of any I looked at from several sellers. I bought it sight unseen and it exceeded my expectations. My impressions are similar to the other reviews; great looking knife with excellent fit and finish, nice grind and super sharp out of the box. I only needed to put it to the strop and it's one of my sharpest blades.

Takes and holds an incredible edge. My most used and most valued knife, though far from the most expensive.
|Great Value! |

I picked one of these up about a month ago. I wanted a carbon Nakiri that was in the ballpark of $100. Went in and looked at 4 possible buys and this is the one that went home with me. It's an amazing knife for the price. Best F&F on the handle of the lot I looked at. The edge was the sharpest factory edge I have seen on a knife so far. Handles and cuts just as you'd expect a nice Nakiri to.

The blade is beautiful; that's what I first noticed. When I first held it, I was surprised that it was so heavy. The outer layers don't attract any oxidation which is great for maintenance and appearances. It's a little on the thick side for my taste but still performs well and consistently. It does very well on nearly all produce but carrots. It's a little too thick and splits them. All in all, a very nice knife and a good deal.

This knife exceeded my expectations. It was sharper than expected out of the box, similar to a Yoshikane. It has a great geometry that facilitates a decent amount of rocking room if that is your style, but not too much if you wanted to grind the edge and make it straight for slicing/chopping with the entire edge on the cutting board at once. The blade has a nice taper from spine to edge, putting the weight a little forward of the handle. It's not the lightest nakiri, but certainly not the heaviest. I felt more attention could be given to the edges on the heel and the spine in terms of fit and finish. I don't care for the bolster, but intended on replacing it anyway. This knife gets four stars because it is a very strong performer for the price. Great steel hardness/ resilience, a great edge, beautiful finish, and most importantly... this knife is fun to use! Thanks to Epic Edge for quick shipping and carrying great steel.
