My name is Dave, i have been a professional Chef for the past fifteen years, in that time i have used about any high end knives you can think of. This Katana series really does keep pace with the best of them. I spend six to ten hours a day cooking or prepping food in a high end restaurant so this knife has seen some serious use (far more use in a few weeks than a home cook could put in if given a year), and hasn't let me down yet. I've been primarily using these knives at work, (they don't offer a ten inch chef, so i have to use my Miyabi 7000d 10" chef for some of the bigger jobs) and haven't had to do any real work on the edge of the knife except to use the ceramic hone before each use, just one swipe down each side of the blade at a twenty five degree angle. I hope this review is helpful for you and I'm sure you will find this knife to be worth every penny!

This is no doubt THE best knife I have ever used. I bought this as a gift so didn't get to use it too much, but the build & weight balance is superb. It very effortlessly cuts through whatever you use it for. If this is the price range you are looking for, look no further.

Holds a nice edge and easily sharpened. I also own another knife in this line and will be adding more to complete the line. the finish on the knife is beautiful and the way the handle tapers really feels natural in your hand.

If the measure of an item's utility is how often you reach for it this knife is at the top. I have a complete set of restaurant kitchen grade knives very close to my block with this knife, the slicer and the paring knife. I reach for the VG Katana knives every time. I'm not a foodie or anything like that. Just someone who cooks fresh food daily. I am also like the Dyson guy. I like things that work well. There is nothing wrong with those other knives, but these just feel better and somehow seem to work better too. The weight, the balance, the edge are just a cut above.

There are a multitude of choices when it comes to knives for cooking. These are on the expensive side. I have used expensive knives and never found them to be any better than the ones used by people on the line in restaurant kitchens. If fact I often found the latter to be superior because the handles were better and they were lighter.

These knives are made of superior laminated "VG" steel which makes them just a bit heavier than stamped knives, but they are forged which means the steel is packed and more dense near the cutting edge. But the design mimics that of a stamped knife which I feel is better, because there is no thicker hilt area which often just gets in the way. The handles are unique in shape and very nice to hold. They also promote proper handling of the knife, like being able to run your index finger along the top of the knife when you need to be precise.

I find the 3 knives I have are adequate for just about every task save boning. I would love to see a traditional boning knife added to the collection .

pros:
the knife looks great, the damascus edge is a nice detail. the design of the knife is good in that it is almost completely seamless--like globals--but the handle is much better shaped and easier to grasp when your hands are wet and/or slimy--unlike globals.

cons:
it's heavy. all the katana knives are quite heavy and the blade is quite thick at the top making fine chopping and dicing difficult. it doesn't quite hold an edge that well either and because of the angle you'll need an asian-style sharpener to keep it sharp.

summary:
once i got the victorinox/forschner, i ended up giving this one to my mother. the katana is just not as versatile as a chefs knife needs to be.
