Three years ago I bought this little Japanese gem in San Francisco for less than $8.00, and it is the pride of my small-kitchen-knife collection, and beats all European attempts at a knife this size. For an inexpensive knife it is impressively made. What is not advertized clearly is that this blade is a thin splinter of ultra hard carbon compounded steel sandwiched in flexible stainless outer layers, a feature usually costing much more. It was sharp out of the box, but still needs, as all knives do, honing with a ceramic stick after each use, to keep a razor edge. (BTW, those folks who boast that they go years without sharpening should learn to sharpen and hone knives, as you can keep it new-sharp that way, forever) If you have a hand lens you can check out the sandwich construction at the base of the blade where it goes into the handle. Edge retention and utility of this knife is superb ..... a total winner!
I believe the same knife is also sold as Suncraft brand.

My friend at work had one of these so I searched Amazon and of course they carried it! After getting tired of a regular ole steak knife cutting up the inside of my lunch bag I HAD to buy one of these! It works great but as the previous reviewer states, it is SHARP! Be careful with it...I'm kind of nervous using it at work since I use it to cut up apples!

I bought this knife to bring to work for my lunches. It is a perfect size for a lunchbox and cuts through tomatoes, etc like a hot knife through butter. Make sure you clean the knife before putting it back in its sleeve.

This is such a good knife, like most products made in Japan.
I've had it for more than 2 years now and I haven't had to sharpen it yet.
It cuts just about anything, and the small size and handle shape give you great control for peeling etc.
It handles tomato and bell pepper skin very well considering that it's not serrated.
Definitely recommended!

Some things aren't optional in the kitchen and knives are close to the top of that list for me. I have a couple Shun products, the most used is their 10" Chef's Knife, and wanted to experiment with ultra-cheap products for a while before I could get my hands on a traditional Japanese set. This knife is truly incredible for the price.

Nothing impresses me more than a quality product at some absurdly low cost and I still can't quite figure out why it's so cheap; it's made in Japan, the materials aren't bad at all, and even feels decent in the hand. It arrived impossibly sharp for a cheap blade and it's even held up well with frequent use with no signs of the handle or scabbard flexing at points where two materials are joined. I even think it's a pretty handsome little guy. While there are certainly other products that may be better in a variety of ways (better steel, better materials, etc.), I've never held a ten dollar knife and felt so confident in it.

If you want a genuinely good, downright cheap knife, you couldn't do better than this.

I bought one of these for myself after refinishing one for a friend. They are charming and made with good steel. They do suffer from a few faults mainly due to the price point and demands of economic mass production. The fit and finish of the wood and the black pieces is rough. The scabbard on some of these has a less-than-perfect seam which should be invisible. My scabbard had several gouges and low spots filled with some filler which was a decent color match, but the filler is noticeable, especially after I refinished it. The wood is not very smooth and the finish (shellac?) is rough. Just know that these are NOT dishwasher safe and should not be left to soak. I just give a quick wipe with a damp cloth, then dry immediately.

I took my brand new knife and sanded off all the original finish. The only difficult part was that I would have liked to unrivet the blade from the handle but I couldn't do it without gouging the wood significantly. This made it harder to sand smooth and impossible to align the black piece with the handle, which was out of alignment due to hasty assembly. The black piece came off the scabbard easy enough with a few minutes of gentle but firm coaxing. At that time I filled the seam in the scabbard with thick super-glue, then rounded the harsh edges and block-sanded both pieces using 220, then 320, then 1800 MicroMesh. I masked off the black parts and the blade and sprayed on several coats of nitrocellulose lacquer, sanding with 2400 MicroMesh between coats with a final polish of 3200 after the last coat had dried several days. This results in a very smooth and tactile feel without being too glossy -- a nice satin finish. This is how you turn a $10 knife into a $100 knife! I'll put up pictures in a few days.

I am not a huge kitchen person and this was really for the wife but I love how easy this is for cutting bell peppers, strawberries and such. It is too small for meat or melons but I don't think it is meant for that anyway.

I won't say this is the best quality knife out there, but I will say it is more than adequate. Small, very sharp, easy to handle. It is very lightweight, that can be a good or bad thing depending on your perspective. It was easy to dispatch a small watermelon, cut right thru the rind and easily sectioned and cubed the flesh quickly and accurately. This is one sharp little knife, only time will tell if it stays that way. I can see where it would be handy in a lunch box or even a backpack for the hikers out there....and certainly in the picnic essentials, this knife makes short work out of tomatoes, as well as apples and pears. I will buy at least one other, and maybe a couple of more, endless uses for a compact blade that comes with its' own sheath/scabbard. I can even see using this for a steak knife, and acquiring a set won't empty your bank account.
