    I will do a complete review when I get a chance to spend some more time. But in short its been a fun knife, cuts like a laser on veggies and comes with a beautiful saya for 125?!! I think this nikiri could be a great deal for someone on a tight budget. I just got the shig KU nikiri and I feel like other than the sharpness level, these two perform quite similarly. The shig does take an incredible edge but there is no way its edge retention can make a dent in the gesshin. For a serious workhorse knife I would recommend this gesshin nikiri as an inexpensive and incredible option.

    This will be fun! In addition to testing the uraku I'll get to test my new camera too, so hopefully no lousy cellphone pics for my leg of the passaround.

    Also, PM with address sent!

    Brad, you are seeing a difference in carbon, and stainless. I would say the shig would keep a edge longer lasting because of this. (not counting ht. some people can change that)

    Also when I sent that I would say it was at 90% of what John had sent me. Glad you are enjoying the experience.
