    Na I didn't use it but I might pick one up. I just bought something else but maybe I'll buy one of the Tanakas in a little while when I have a little money again. They only have 1 in stock so I'll probably miss this one. I don't mind thinning at all. They seem like a hell of a bargain

    So I spent a few shifts with it, I have to say a very different knife but does remind me of shigefusa.

    It takes a great edge and the stainless cladding is great, I also love stainless that can preform, over carbon. Edge retention was quite good as well.

    I was impressed by a workhorse cutting so well I assume do to the thinning. Really does slice well, but will wedge in large onions. I used this to tackle some huge sweet potatoes and butternut squash did the job well.

    The profile is nice and I could see using this knife often if it were in my kit.

    I will be passing it out tomorrow or Tuesday.
