I work in the restaurant biz, so I’ve owned a lot of different knives. I saw the price and style of this one and thought I’d give it a go. The packaging was great! It came in a nice wooden box with a coin keepsake. The knife is gorgeous. As soon as I picked it up tho, the handle was too narrow for me. Something you’d usually find on a pocket knife or something of the sort. I took it for a test drive and it came sharp! It just didn’t have a wide enough handle for my personal tastes. Too hard to stabilize and get straight cuts. It might be perfect for a home chef or what have you, but not someone that’s gonna spend hundreds of hours behind the knife. I’ll definitely keep it as a show piece to use occasionally when guests are over, but I won’t be taking this to work as my everyday carry.
Quality looks amazing. It's a gift, so it hasn't been used yet, but I think this knife will perform exceptionally. Got the Damascus chop sticks too. I take them to sushi joints and use them. Everything this company makes just looks amazing!
I like the Damascus pattern looks great. The handle on this knife ( In my opinion) is a little too small. Also make sure you oil the knife for storage or it will rust right away. Overall I'm a little disappointed with this knife.
After I dressed up the edge it will slice tomatoes with no effort at all. Nice Knife.
Almost too stunning to use! Well balanced and razor sharp. 11/10
