    Enjoy your new purchase...but be careful because once you get the taste of satisfaction of working with a high quality knife you are just going to want to get more!

    well, he uses his own brand of knives... at least when he's on TV... he's not short on revenue strings thats for sure

    Here it is! It's not as sexy as some of the knives I see here but it's quite nice for my first Japanese knife. I can't get over how light it is compared to the Wusthof.





    Here's a side by side comparison. Big difference.

    the 440 is actually a heavier knife compared to most J knives. I guess it makes for a good transition,coming from Germans.

    Really? I thought it was light as a feather. I can't imagine one being even lighter than that. Sliced through a head of cauliflower and cabbage like butter.

    Great blade, love the profile. Did you choose Korin's 'initial sharpening' option?
