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.
Easy and good service. Unbelievable knife quality.
I have been using my knives for months and they have held their edge well. I am very satisfied.
A beautiful knife that stays sharp. I gave four stars because the edge curves a bit much for me.
Hello. So I haven't used it a lot yet, overall I like it but: (I will make the comparison with this model that I use a lot: https://japanesechefsknife.com/collections/fujiwara-kanefusa-fkm-series/products/fujiwara-kanefusa-fkm-series-petty-japanesechefsknife-com) -I like the size of small knife for its maneuverability, but I find it a little too long: the handle being made of wood and light I find it less balanced, which seems to me to be an important point for this kind of format. It is long and looks more like a little chef's knife, it may be good from a certain point of view, but I don't like to use it like that. -I don't like the fact that there is a white plastic that comes to hold the blade, there is a very slight unpleasant "interspace" and it makes noise when you move the blade, I'm afraid that in the long run this shortens its lifespan. -The end of the handle has protruding edges, I have large hands and when I use it for a long time it is unpleasant, it is also the case for my old knife, good in general I find that the handles most of the knives are too short. I ordered this knife to have something more "aesthetic " than the one I had, yes it is prettier than the old one, but I find it less practical at the time, maybe it is a question of habit. There you have it, have a good day. Best regards.
Great knife for cutting fruit and vegetables. Accurately cuts soft fruit like tomatoes. It can also be used to cut meat replacement like tofu. Perfect for a vegetarian or vegan household.
