Game Changer

After getting this knife with a finished edge by Zach Peters,,,,it is now my knife to measure not only the level of sharpness, but also the standard of performance. The best way to describe it is "silk"... when cutting anything from a ripe tomato to a carrot, it is nice and smooth. The blade sinks into whatever I am cutting. Denifetly worth the purchase,,,if you like the knives you use now, do not get this knife because it will set the bar for a new standard and you will have to buy more Hatsukokoro knives. Happy Chopping
