However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems.
We believe quality and performance of Japanese knives are best in the world and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife can be your special cooking partner for long time.
This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife, which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition.
All in all a beautiful knife. It‘s just a little to thick for my taste. Don‘t expect a laser-like cutting experience. Other than that a wonderful knife which can serve as a nice present
This was a gift bought for my girlfriend and it's easily the best knife we have. Well balanced and a fantastic value!
Very sharp, nice construction overall, love the wooden handle (though I prefer slightly longer handle) Great for smaller things like fruits, shaping things, etc, things too small for chef's knife and too big for paring knife. I do use it like a honesuki too, but it is a bit awkward, and I am constantly afraid of chipping the edge, although it hasn't happened.
