what i expected

The packaging and the knife have arrived in good condition, everything as expected, thank you

Outstanding blade

A true artisan crafted blade. Aogami super is just an incredible steel. It sharpens easily to a crisp edge with Naniwa pro stones.

First serious knife

This is a good knife. It’s attractive and well made. Some days I’d say I love it but in a commercial setting the full carbon requires a little too much maintenance and for some reason I can’t get it to stay super sharp. Some of my stainless knives are more reliable on tomatoes. I expected better sharpness and edge retention from aogami super steel but I’ll admit my own fault. eventually I’ll get better at sharpening and maintaining it and I’ll figure out how to make it patina instead of rust.
