This knife is a work of art definitely a laser. Flys through food and that stamped pattern pushes foodlike potato away from the blade.

Yoshimi kato minamo is a light saber

I wasn’t expecting much from this knife to be honest. First thing I did when I got it was started at the choil and spine. WOW! The choil stopped me right in my tracks. The edge on this knife is so thin it’s ridiculous! Some people look for a razor, laser, or in this case. A light saber…. Highly recommend this knife to someone looking to up their knife game or celebrate an accomplishment.
