I am very impressed with the value and performance of this knife. Fit and finish is great. It easily took a scary sharp edge. It may be my new favorite knife. This knife’s performance is akin to an Ashi Ginga for roughly half the price.
Also the handle I picked out (ebony with a ferrule) fits great. It seems that the knife was balanced perfectly during handle installation, which is a great touch.
If anyone is reading this that may be considering this knife, pull the trigger. It is absolutely worth the money at the ~$100 range. If you don’t sharpen knives I would recommend getting the sharpening service offered, as the knife needed touched up out of the box.
A fantastic gyuto for the price.
