My go-to knife in the kitchen!
I've had this knife for over a decade and it's still my main kitchen knife. It tackles just about every cutting job you throw at it with ease. The blade was quite sharp out of the box and hold its edge well. The handle fits nicely in my hand and the knife is well balanced. I actually prefer a knife that's on the heavier side but this is one of the lighter knives I own and I have no complaints. Tough to beat especially for the price.

Pleasantly surprised...
Very impressive out of the box. I have a high dollar sharpener and keep a mirror finish on all my decent blades wither kitchen, EDC, or field blades. I fully expect to reshape and sharpen any new knife I get. Although this blade was not a mirror finish it was almost as sharp as I could make it. I was worried about the grip as it looked hard to keep clean in a kitchen atmosphere but that is not the case as the handle features are not to aggressive. It fits nicely in my hand slightly oversize hand with a nice balance and feel. The blade has a bit more curve to it than my other kitchen knifes and that took a bit of getting used to but now I prefer it. I have had it for only a few months now but it gets almost daily use on my wood board and it has maintained it sharpness nicely. Only aspect I can not comment on is it's sharpenability because I have had the need to yet. However even if it takes longer than desired it has already proven its worth considering how long it keeps its edge. This has been my first Spyderco blade of any style but Spyderco might also be my next blade.

Great Knife
We use this as a daily kitchen knife and couldn't be happier with it. It comes extremely sharp and holds an edge well, even better than some higher dollar knives we own. Its thin blade is perfect for chopping and dicing. Overall, I am extremely happy with the knife and would recommend it to anyone that likes a large Santoku knife.
