Nice knife - but the handle is an issue

The blade itself is great - much better that the Wusthof set I've been using for 20+ years. I wear XL gloves and I find that my hand completely covers the wood handle. As a result, my hand comes too close to the bottom edge of the knife. The polished wood handle looks nice, but it seem to be a bit slippery. I'll gift the knife to a lucky friend or relative and buy another with the same blade and the Japanese handle. (I have another knife from Hasu with the Japanese handle)

Life Changing Knife

My wife described the knife as, "life changing." She seems very pleased with it. At first, she wasn't even interested in getting a new kitchen knife, but my eye for beautiful knifes led me to purchase one anyway. Of course, I'll never get a chance to use it. She seems VERY happy to cut meats now, and I think the knife might be influencing our diet!
