Quality


The quality is equal to knives that cost double.


It's everything a high quality kitchen knife should be.


Very pleased with it, and had high expectations.

Packaging/appearance


The packaging is lovely too and perfect for giving the knife as a knife.


Excellent blade, sharp right out of the package.

Competitiveness


This is my second mac (also own nakiri) and third japanese knife (the other is a tojiro i use mostly for fish).


I have been a chef for 20 years now.


Blows the socks off of my cutco knives.


I got it to replace a 30-year henckels version with a sadly broken handle.

    You cannot find a better santoku for the money.

    Tojira is not quite as sharp as mac and bit more difficult to hold.
