Quality Knife, Sharp, Well Balanced
Kansas City, MO
Zhen Santoku Knife Blank 4-13/16" L x 5/64" T (120mm x 1.8mm)
This is an absolutely beautiful knife. I am so impressed with the quality that I am ordering other Zhen knife kits to add to our cutlery.
One word of caution. Check the hilt. There was a burr on the handle side of the hilt that kept one of the stiles from sitting flush against it. A small file quickly took care of the issue.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Knife, holds edge well
This knife is my wife's favorite. I have a spyderco folding knife in VG-10 and I love it. This knife seems to share the excellent edge retention that my spyderco does. For a damascus knife of this quality the price is great. I finished it very plainly with bolivian rosewood sanded to 1000 grit, it looks great. I drilled 3/16 holes for pins instead of using the included rivets, which aren't very impressive. So far my wife has used it everyday for 6 months and I've sharpened it once. This blade size and shape are perfect for the qualities of VG-10. Don't put it in the dishwasher and don't use on bones or non-food items as a steel with this level of edge retention will chip if used carelessly. I'll be buying one as a wedding present and several for Christmas gifts as well.
The kit did not come with instructions for the scales. I wasn't sure how much the rivets tightened. The instructions were emailed right away when I asked for them. The kit even included an extra rivet. The finished product looks terrific. I laminated strips of veneer stained 3 different colors. Ebony, Special Walnut and Natural. I alternated the layers to get the needed 1/2 inch thickness. It took 24 layers. The finished pattern on the scales is similar to the pattern of the folded layers of the steel knife.
Time will tell how well it holds an edge.
