I like that they stay razor sharp, are light, and aesthetically they look awesome. Their thin blades also help do precision cuts when working with meat and fish.EWEN CRAWFORD Movida Aqui Head Chef, Melbourne, Australia
Any other knife does not compare. The precision and cleanliness of the cuts are the finest I have cut in my career. The balance of the knife is perfect. (Takamura Suminagashi 210mm gyuto)EDWARD LEE Chef, Sydney, Australia
Light yet perfectly balanced, this beautiful blade glided through everything with ease from meat to vegetables. The octagon handle is comfortable to grip and doesn't slip.SAMUEL YEO Black Star Pastry Pastry Chef, Sydney, Australia
