I bought this knife for a few reasons: I don't have a laser nor have ever used one so I must get one at some point. I wanted a super thin and light knife that had great geometry for mass prep. Also I have hear so many good things about Konosuke but do not have to time to upkeep a carbon steel knife in a busy kitchen, nor is it practical.
The knife arrived as usual 3 days after it was shipped, thanks to the great customer service!
Blade: Great finish on the blade, a rounded spine very even all the way down. It has a super thin blade and feels like a feather in your hand.
Handle: Not much to say about the handle...A standard octagon handle very basic, it is finished very nicely though all edge are rounded and is comfortable in the hand.
Edge: The edge to the finger it feel very sharp OOTB. Shaves hair, and slices printer paper to shreds.
Overall: IMHO this knife is worth more than I paid from first impressions. Time will ultimately tell how I like the knife but with a sharp OOTB edge an impressive fit and finish, I am very excited to test it on some food.
