Spike was just making a joke about santoku's in general.
And it wasn't a statement on the veracity of the knife. Just a knife joke.
Not trying to call you out, just bad form to critique a knife on a B/S/T thread.
Especially when it's based solely on looks. *as far as I can tell from your post*
sorry you weren't around to police the Suisin Inox Honyaki Santoku thread on here.
Not trying to police a damn thing, but I am going way off topic so I'll give it a rest. Sorry y'all.
All comments aside, I received the Tadafusa today (Quick shipping bk!) and found it exactly as described. I am surprised by how thin and light it is.
The way I see it I get to try SLD steel in a knife style I like for 40 bucks.
