This knife is not only REALLY sharp, but also quite handsome
I like Damascus Steel knives anyway, but the wood handle is beautiful too. Keep it sharp and it will last for generations.

This knife was purchased for me as a gift. I can hardly get it away from my wife, who believes it is the finest knife she has ever used.

If you are looking at this knife, you probably know a thing or two about knives. Just to be safe though, these knives are single bevel. That means that only one side of the edge is sharp. In America, you are used to having a double bevel, a knife sharpened on both sides. It takes a little, but not much getting used to.

You should also know that these knives are an investment, though they are much more reasonable than many of the kind you will find at your local, high-end kitchen retail store. Considering the prices of other high end cutlery, this is actually a steal. If you treat them right, (don't put them in a dishwasher, wash by hand, dry, sharpen with a whetstone or send it in to a professional for sharpening) you will be handing this down to your children.

Also, you should not be afraid of getting this brand, as they are much more popular and reputable than you would suspect. Generally, you see other brands, the big German and Japanese at most of your local stores. There are two really excellent cutlery shops which service local butchers, and chefs, and they have a plethora of these knives. No need to be a kitchen snob to use one of these, just someone that loves the feel of a powerful, light-weight and durable knife in their hand.

In my opinion, single bevels offer a great deal more precision, and also allow for thinner slices. Vegetables beware, because you will cut through them (seriously) easier than a hot knife through butter.

Recommend.

The package arrived quickly and was very sturdily put together. No rattling or shaking. I had to get a knife to cut several strips of tape. Loose paper was packed inside the outer shell to ensure that nothing would shake around. Good packaging, and free, too.

The knife itself came in a blue box made of finely textured cardboard, complete with gold letting. It was double-secured with rubber bands. Very secure. A piece of foam was inside the case, another measure to prevent rattling during shipping.

The knife itself was beautiful. It was very sharp, as I anticipated. I bundled together plastic bags and the knife just slid through it as though I put no weight at all behind my movement. Upon closer inspection, as well as studying the small yellow paper with Japanese instructions, I discovered that the knife is, indeed, double edged. However, the diagram on the paper depicts a single-edged knife, so it was confusing at first. The craftsmanship of the blade is so fine it took me several minutes to figure out if it was double-edged or not. It is.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE PULL-THROUGH SHARPENERS ON THIS KNIFE. You'll not only damage a beautiful piece of artwork, but also probably dull the blade more than you will sharpen it. Get a fine-grit waterstone. Look at the picture on the yellow paper slip inside the knife case. Follow those instructions.

Overall, the knife itself is great. It cuts like a hot coal through cobwebs and retains a very fine edge. It even comes with a plastic sleeve for the blade, made of high-quality plastic. Just be careful not to cut the case as you sheathe the knife.

I fell in love with the design of Yoshihiro hammered Damascus knives the minute I saw pictures here on Amazon, and ordered a 6.3" Usuba and an 8.2" Gyuto to start with, hoping to complete the set later on. The blade is very sharp, and hammered Damascus steel looks stunning. The wood grain of the handle is also beautiful, and compliments the blade nicely, giving the knife a very classy and more traditional look. Also, both Usuba and Gyuto are surprisingly well balanced, which is often an issue with Japanese knives w/ Western style handles. So, at first, it looked like "the" perfect knife I've been looking for. Sadly, there is one issue that both knives had that made me return both of them. The bolster area is very poorly finished and has rough and sharp edges (the bolster itself, the weld where it attaches to the tang, the spine and the back of the blade), so if you use the pinch grip (with two fingers on the blade), it makes using these knives very uncomfortable and even painful (if you just hold your knives with "all fingers on the handle" grip, then this won't be an issue for you). I really wanted to like these knives, but I just couldn't deal with how uncomfortable they felt every time I picked them up. It's just not something you expect on a $100+ knife, especially when even cheap department store knives have better attention to detail than this.

We love the Yoshihiro knives that we have been collecting one by one. They are excellent quality, made in Japan by a company that has been practicing blade production for 500 years. The knives are *beautiful* as are the handles. They are a fantastic value. We looked for Yoshihiro knives when thinking about purchasing a set of Shun knives. We ultimately went with Yoshihiro because they were heavier, better made, and we are able to sharpen them ourselves following the directions on the Yoshihiro website. We use these knives daily and prefer them to any other! With proper care, they will be the last set we ever purchase.

Additionally, the seller was fabulous--easy to order from, fantastic price, as well as quick shipping and delivery! We couldn't be happier!
