I just got my masamoto VG last wk and Im kind of disappointed. It wasn't that sharp out of the box and the seller says its already super sharp out of the box. It is not sharp.. I think I need to sharpen it..
It passed the tomato test but didnt pass the blowing hair on the knife and the knife cuts the hair test.
That is not a hard test to pass. (http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTA2OTY2Mjcy.html) Even my Wusthof can do it.
So is it 2x better than the 100 dollar Sakai Takayuki at just half the price??
Has anyone tried both? I want it to pass the hair blowing test..I know no one does it but if you have a good knife could you try it to tell me if it can do it? do I need to sharpen it and should I just get a Sakai... it seems equally good.
Please feel free to tell me bc Im new to this!
