If you have the money, go buy one of these today. This thing is a hidden gem and more people should have them. Feels like a fucking razor and holds an edge like nothing I've used before. I love the shape. I love the size. I love the feel. It's not the prettiest knife, but it sure ain't bad. It's simple, useful, and probably a great first carbon steel knife if that's something you're interested in. Update: The problem is — as with many Japanese knives — they're unique and so they sell out quickly. The link is already dead and it's sold out the manufacturer's site too. Looks like a couple other knife shops have stock and they'll probably change over time. Good luck!
This little baddie is my carbon steel go-to for daily use. I love how light this knife is, and the shorter blade and razor edge gives me the extra confidence I need when tackling a new knife skill. The only down side is how brittle this knife is, and being that it's carbon steel it does need dried off immediately.
