Pros

The knife is still sharp, and works well, but. Easy to handle and sharp as a tack, it's my wife’s fave. It's unbelievably sharp. I think i'm going to get a trizor sharpener for it and my other knives.

Relatively cheap and great performance. Price is almost half what you’d pay for a comparable knife this good. Nice traditional and well known japanese knives are at least $100 to $400 more expensive, so this price is amazing. Comes in a nice gift box,...  Read More

The mac is a very sharp knife that slices through veggies easily. It's very light and thin, which works really well for slicing and chopping through onions and vegetables.

The sharpness and maneuverability are the things i like about it the most. There’s a an almost ethereal quality to them.

This is a highly rated knife on an independent cooking site that i like, and i needed i smaller knife that i could maneuver better. This knife was recommended to me in tokyo by a master chef at a restaurant. I like it much better than a typical chef's...  Read More



Cons

There is a gap where the handle meets the blade at the front end of the handle because the knife tang is forged with a slight convex curve. This is very sharp and performance is perfect but it chipped 4 places and rusted many spots only using 5 days.

Total bevel angle (sum of the bevels on both sides of the blade) is 45. It is for a right-handed person. There is no indication the knife was made in china as another reviewer claimed.

Quality


Bought this set to leave onboard and we couldn’t be happier with the quality and sharpness of the blade.


From the first cut i was completly satisfied by the quality of the knife.


For the money, i probably should have stuck with the same brand knife i already had.


There’s a an almost ethereal quality to them.

Price


Price is almost half what you’d pay for a comparable knife this good.


Overall, it's definitely a step up from the 20-50 dollar knives i've had in the past, so the price seems fair.

Packaging/appearance


Not only a stunning and elegant knife but comes in beautiful, giftable packaging (thank you, me lol!

Competitiveness


I ended up buying a wusthof santoku and that had a nonstick surface that didn't stop me from making fast repeated cuts.


A bit expensive but a great tool for a chief


And my old henkels just won’t keep an edge any more.

    It's normal for some knives like carbon steel and non-stainless to need that kind of care, but the amazon product description for this knife says rust-resistant, which it definitely is not.

    I don't mind babying it, though, so it's not a deal-breaker for me.

    It was a christmas gift and by the time we used it it was to late to return.

    I would like the seller to contact me.
