I had knifes ranging from $100 to $2000.
But this is my everyday Knife. Its razor sharp and has a very comfortable handle.
One of the Best Knife I ever had.
I hadn't used or handled a Takamura knife before purchasing this one. They had positive reviews online and a hybrid Eastern-Western offering peaked my interest. Eastern being santoku blade with a western style handle.
SG2 steel quality is high and the blade is really nice. Well finished, sharp, clean comfortable bolster, and the handle is very comfortable. Wood quality is great, pins are finished and can't be felt. So no rough edges or any discernible cost cutting, quality issues. It balances well in hand and I have no complaints or criticisms.
