I ordered this knife which arrived 8 days later here in Australia which I thought was quite good - Thanks

Out the box the fit and Finnish was acceptable to good. One small thing was that the tip of the blade was a little bent, but it did not take much to straighten by hand.

Sharpness out the box was okay for most jobs in the kitchen I would suppose, but clearly needed some time on the stones which I expected anyway when I ordered it. After about a hour on the stones (I'm A beginner) it was razor sharp. I let my my wife give it a try while preparing for dinner and she would not give it back! :lol:

Maybe this "review" looks a little negative but I am very very happy with this knife. It's only my second Japanese style knife which I got so I could have a smaller size as my other is the Kohetsu 270mm and also use to practice sharpening, so I could gain some confidence before tackling my Kohetsu Aogami Super Gyuto 270mm.

It's only been one day but it looks like it's going to be a winner, especially at only $65

Thanks CKTG

I think they have a lacquer over the blade to protect it from oxidizing in storage/transport, and that lacquer usually covers the edge, so it does need sharpening out of the box. I have the same knife and love it! Nice and thin, ground pretty well for the rustic knife that it is and it performs very well.
