This is what I guess is considered a workpony: a knife with some weight, a relatively thick spine, but still thin behind the edge. I believe the SKD version tends to be more popular but I really like this steel: easy to sharpen, very sharp and still though (even cut crusty bread without issues), takes a patina quickly so no rust issues. (Edge retention has never been important to me as a home cook.) Bought this knife about a year ago and did a couple of touch-ups but no heavy sharpening. I removed some scratches from the bevel using fine sandpaper and polish, I am happy with the result but the bevels don't have the mirror polish the new knife comes with.
I always liked this knife but a very special Mazaki in the same size has come in, so I decided this one has to go...
