Picked up this during a promotion. Beautifully made, perfect balance and great feel. Sharp out of the box and stayed sharp so far after 4 weeks. Bought a second one for my dad as well.
This santoku knife is absolutely stunning, not only in performance but also Beauty, and craftsmanship. On top of that, I couldn't have been happier to find this website after spending countless hours researching. In a market so saturated I was paranoid of purchasing a knife that may not be genuine. Hasu-seizo put all that concern to rest with their transparency, and we'll explained relationship with the knife manufacturer. I received my order very timely, a day before the estimated arival date. I loved the hand written note that came with my knife as it made me feel even more confident in the legitimacy of the company. Hasu-seizo truly goes above and beyond to make a happy customer and i will be collecting all my knifes from them from now on.
