Conclusion: This is the first Japanese designed knife we have tested. It has quite a different feel from the traditional German knives we generally use. After testing this knife on onions, small hot peppers and garlic it is hard to go back to a chef's knife. The knife is slightly heavier on the blade side and it works very well to cut very thin slices. You have a very great control over small vegetables that need to be minced, which can be difficult with a larger knife. Overall this seems like a very nice knife with a good quality blade.
