Performance

Out of the box, the knife benefits from Masutani-san's 30+ years of skill and experience as a sharpener and although you could get them sharper with a quick hone or pass over a whetstone we think for the excellent price point they're plenty sharp already and would be great in any kitchen. 

Beauty

The hammer finish combined with the half-tang Western style handle mix Japanese blade style with the Western handle nicely and would look great on your knife rack and in the kitchen. Each knife has a unique pattern so there's plenty of variety. 

Value for money

Excellent. At this price, you're getting a lot of skill and experience going into the making of the knife and the fit and finish are good. Out of the box it's already sharp but if you like, you could hone it further and you'd have a great knife for your collection or as a great present for a keen chef.
