What I mean, is that imho the maker really shites on what you like,
You dont get it your way, if you want that, go to Burger King.
Its brittle and thats the way it is. Its brutal and thats the way it is.
This knife is not made to massage your ego but to challenge you. Isnt that all the fun theer is about a knife??
Same with steel, it is very hard and you have to adjust to the fact because the maker - I am solemnly hoping - will never do.
One of the sharpest wildest craziest edges Ive got, ever. Its not only about the way it feels to the touch, its about how eagerly it cuts.
I thought you could compare Masamotos edge to it, but after some recent sharpening, that holds no truth. I dont really know what to compare it to?
Makes me really really want another one!
Hah when I come to think about it I think it applies to both but yeah I talked about Kato.
But I'm quite sure not everyone does like these.
Well i think that it is 2 very very different knives, even so they wight exactly the same Kato feel somehow more mighty when Shig is more delicate.
Shig FF is of coarse the best and very hard to beat by any makers. Katos steel is much harder and thats why it feels more stiffer. But Shig have taper that i like most.
Kato take better edge and hold it longer. But shig is easier to thin and sharpens quicker.
They both cut amazingly ! So its very hard to say witch is best even for me. If i should choose one i will choose both
thanks, Maxim. nice comment!!
