I have one of these. It was my first Japanese knife. You can do a lot worse for the money. Good steel & HT...nice distal taper...I have other knives I use more now, but IMO this is an excellent value for the money. Good luck finding this one a new home!
These tadafusa nashiji line have some of the best blue steel you can get for the money. I haven’t owned one but I sharpen several often for co workers. Nice consistent blades with good grinds and straight spines.
