WOW. I didn't know $h*t about knives. Thank you BDL for setting the record straight.
After talking with someone over at JKD, "Santa" got me an Echizen Japan sujihiki. Any effort to write a review of this knife would probably just sound like a kid talking about the first time he got laid... So I'll spare you.
Only problem... this knife (like my first girlfriend) is out of my league! Outside of basic, obvious, knife care, how do I care for it best? Is this a knife that should be honed between applications?
