What a beautiful knife. The hammered pattern on the blade is not only beautiful, it helps release food when chopping. The knife is very well crafted. It’s extremely sharp and well balanced. Craftsmanship, features and eye catching good looks make this knife a great buy for the price point.
Amazing looking knife (true to the picture), you will not be disappointed! Very good quality build and definitely up to the task of being used as your main chef's knife! Shipped and arrived very quickly as well.
Je suis ravi d'avoir acheté ce couteau, il est très bien et rend la découpe des légumes plus simple et précise. Cela dit, le couteau vient avec une étiquette dans la boîte qui mentionne le prix est de 7500 YEN au Japon et ici il vendu deux fois plus cher voire plus quand il n'est pas en spécial, c'est un peu ordinaire.
I’m always a little sceptical when ordering from a new site online, but they were very friendly and helpful, even shipped out the next day!! It was for a gift, but so happy with it! Thank you kindly :)
