Great Knife   
Barry  Washington State, USA  3/7/2013

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

 
Great Value!   
Scott W.  Seattle, WA  2/16/2013

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.

 
What a tank   
Dan  Bogota  7/5/2011

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.

 
Stop wondering.. buy it.    
Jeff  Ann Arbor, MI  7/19/2008

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.
