The knife feels great in the hand. The handle feels super solid.
Did some tests with paper and it can slice through it easily.
Did some tests with fruits and seem to perform well.
Due to the un-conventional shape of the knife, it doesn't fit in my block very well.
I don't expect the knife to do everything except cutting veggies.
Hopefully, the 8" classic will go one sale soon so that I can get it and do a comparison between the two.
The knife is definitely worth 40$ though... probably not $100+
It's a beautiful knife. Literally. Striking. And extremely sharp. Very good for cutting tomatoes, other veggies, and even bread.
However, it's not as versatile or as ergonomic as a chef's knife or a santoku. This is because of its shallow blade, straight angle, and serrated edge.
If you're just starting out with building your knife collection and on limited budget, skip this for now and invest in a chef's knife or Santoku, or even a small paring knife. If you're rounding out your collection, this is a great addition.
Excellent build quality Japanese knife. I mostly use it for paring roasted duck or turkey. Way much better than the Miyabi utility knife (which is also really good) I used to use. It is a perfect size knife for me to handle the birds.

This knife works very well when cutting bread! Just make sure to wash and dry it with a cloth immediately after use. I do that just in case. This is very sharp.Published 4 months ago by Mark T
