Pros: Design, Sharpenability, Sharpness, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Material Quality, Durability
Nice entry-level Japanese cutlery
Purchased a set of these largely out of curiosity. I love Japanese style cutlery but don't want to invest too much into something we will inevitably abuse and neglect over time. The santoku arrived in simple but attractive packaging, with a very thin, sharp edge. Was able to cut cleanly through paper without dragging right out of the box. Build quality is good for the price. Though some shortcuts were clearly taken to reduce cost, the end result is far from crude.The knife is feather light with a very thin blade stock, gliding through vegetables with ease. It's a delight to use, and the one I reach for most often. One must take care to keep the handles clean and dry. The natural wood finish looks and feels great, but it is porous.What may turn off some buyers are some cosmetic features. The collar appears to be a very thin plastic wrap. The flats of the blade have a decent horizontal satin finish, followed by an inexplicable vertical brushed finish that clearly overlaps the grind bevel. You can barely see it from the pictures, but in person it's glaringly obvious. Perhaps this was intended to emulate a temper line. Regardless, the whole package is unmistakably Japanese and I love it.Five stars for delivering style and performance at a very reasonable price. There are few alternatives (at least in the U.S. market) for Japanese knives in this price range.
