    Bought both of these for our daily use kitchen. We have a Sushi knife from Japan which cost over $300. These two are just as sharp, well crafted and perfectly balanced. I put mesquite scales on them and had both done in under 2 hours. I put magnets on the side of our knife block so you could appreciate the fine finish of these blades. This is an unbelievable value if you want a professional quality knife.

    Knife is warped

    Poorly finished. I expect at least a straight knife blade at this price. The blade was bowed, and the handle comes off from where it attaches to the blade at a several degree angle. Handle was slightly bowed as well. You can straighten the blade with a vice and some spacers, but the handle took a bit of grinding. I ended up having to slightly angle the handle scales so they would match with the bolster.

    Made this knife for my wife as a Mother's Day gift. She uses it for almost everything. Holds a razor sharp edge for a long time. When it does need dressed, I give it a couple passes on the 4000 grit wet sand and it'll take the hair right off. A must for cutting thin slices of thin-skinned vegetables like tomatoes. Glides through like hot butter.

    I purchased the paring knife about a year ago and it quickly became my favorite knife in the knife drawer. it has now been replaced by the Zhen Nakiri. This knife if super sharp and makes slicing anything very easy, almost effortless. It's an excellent size and has a nice feel in the hand. Perfect for sandwich making, meat slicing, tomato cutting. With a stunning cocobolo handle it has now become my go to utensil and easily the best knife in my kitchen, even compared to knives costing three times as much.

    I purchased to provide for my son, a sou chef. Word of mouth quickly spread and I sold 2 more Knives. The selection of wood scales and ability to customize the handles make this finished tool something that cannot be imitated.
