    I received the knife yesterday. It feels very solid (rigid), hefty, yet nimble. The feel of the knife is amazing and the finish is pretty cool too. I will cut a bunch of stuff today to give it a good workout.

    Any chance I can join this pass around? I've been looking for my first $300+ knife and Kochi is at the top of my list. I'd love the opportunity to give it a test drive. Thanks!

    Here are my thoughts of the Kochi.
    Here's the quick summery, I think I'm going to buy one in the traditional gyuto shape.
    Out of the box I was immediately impressed by the feel of the knife and the fit and finish. The knife feels very solid, yet not clunky. The kurouchi finish is very well done and the bevel is polished beautifully. All the usual creature comforts are there, rounded choil and spine. The toasted chestnut handle is very nice as well, it feels exceptional in the hand. As far as cutting goes, it's a winner. It moves through food as well as my Konosuke HD and Fujiyama gyutos. I cannot comment on sharpening, but the steel had a very nice edge and held it for as long as I had it (a week). My only complaint about the knife is the profile. There is a huge curve to the tip of this knife, this makes the tip very uncomfortable to use. I suppose it could be desirable if you did some serious rocking.

    That's it for now

    Ben- thanks a bunch for doing this.

    Observations to follow...
