    I've had a Robert Herder nakiri knife a while back for testing. It was stainless steel, not carbon, but overall I wasn't impressed neither by its performance, nor by craftsmanship. The only thing it had going for it was unusually thin blade for a western kitchen knife, that was it. So, yeah, compared to let's say Watanabe standard kuro uchi nakiri is is a poor value.

    Thanks for telling me what I meant. First you tell me what I meant and then you tell me there is a difference. Where I wrote Europe I meant Europe.
    I did not mean outside of the Union.
    I believe the situation with non-Union Europeans with national VAT is not very simple and I prefer to stay far away from regulations I don't know.

    Alrighty then!

    No biggie, I just sometimes like to point out that there is a difference between Europe and the European Union.
    Most of the time it is the non-Europeans who struggle with the distinction though;)
