|Slices perfectly |

This knife has a razor edge and light weight for the size of blade. I agree it's a pleasure to use, Goldilocks knife, "just right". Can't beat this value, get one for those paper thin slices!!

This is my first "Japanese" knife which I mean single sided and I will say not my last. Out of the box is wasn't bad for sharpness, but once I took it through my stones it was great. Very easy to re-sharpen and a joy to use. Also for the price for a left handed knife it is hard to beat.

The knife is light and is razor sharp. The white steel loses its edge easily when chopping vegetables but it is very easy and fast to sharpen it. I can katsura muki cucumber and daikon a lot better than with a yanagi knife. The only con about the knife is that the metal is prone to oxidizing and water stains so the steel doesn't as new.

Wow this sucker gets sharp! Makes katsuramuki easy and chopping a case of super fine scallions fun. I would have liked it 10mm longer I think. Then it would be perfect. For the price it is amazing.
