Got my Konosuke HD2 24o in the mail when i got home from work today. Out of the box fit and finish are amazing! Very light, handle is tight, no problems up by the ferrule/handle joint. Solid blade to handle joint too. The blade itself is impeccable. Very thin, and light, almost feels like im holding a feather.
As for a sharpness test, I don't have much as my home kitchen is demoed out for rehab. I managed to find half a red onion and test out the blade with that. OMG WOW! That onion didn't stand a chance. I believe the words that came out of my mouth were," What kind of demonic magic spawned this awesome piece of cutlery(cultlrey? seems like we are almost a cult
Taking this knife into work tomorrow to put it through its paces, gonna be fun!!!
