Knife is nice, all parts are good. The only issue is the back end of the cutting edge, that needs to be rounded, otherwise you will hurt yourself, which I already did. The back end of the cutting edge is sharp like a needle and that should not be like that.
This paring knife is SHARP. Everything you want and need in a paring knife. It’s lightweight and well balanced, feels good in your hand, and did I mention It’s Sharp.
As with all their knives, it comes with a band-aid. Beautiful to look at too, the polished Damascus blade is gorgeous and the wooden handle is well made and just fits! You can’t go wrong purchase this paring knife (or other knives) from Midori at Hasu Seizo!
