So I finally sorted out the edge.. Knife feels good so far, stout and sturdy.. The tall knife profile makes e it feel longer than it is, I'm guessing cos of diagonal distance from handle to tip.. Lots of usable edge. Marketed as 180mm but comes in at 185mm, which is a pleasant surprise for me, I'd say I have similar usable edge compared to my 20cm chef knife.. Everything is smooth to the touch.. There does seem to be a small gap at the handle, so I dripped a few drops of super glue to seal it up. Loving the whole bunka look and feel!
