Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Overall Quality
Cons: Lock Type, None
Overall, its a pretty cool design, fun to play with. Blade steel is awesome, Blue #2 is a very popular steel for japanese kitchen knives, being able to take a very acute edge and be able to hold it well without being too brittle. the san-mai construction is also great for ease of maintenance. only gripe is i feel sketchy about the lack of a locking mechanism even though it feels nice and tight out of the box. they supposedly loosen up quite a bit over time, requiring adjustments to keep it tight. if you're looking for a cool, unique higo, and maybe collect them, this might be the one to pick. but if you are just curious about owning one in general, picking up one of the cheaper ones might be a better choice.
