Their scissors are comfortable and cut beautifully, if their knives do the same they may be great for regular folks (non knuts). Until I hold one Ill try not to judge. I don't see much Japanese influence on their Japanese knives though, looks Scandinavian through and through.
Aw, I wish all my knives had a full-height bolster. Or cross guard. Or quillon. Or tsuba. Or whatever that huge chunk of metal is on the Wusthof.
Atleast on their standard-line. I have no idea about the fuzion, but as they don't even know what the knives they produce really are, i doubt it's any better
