    Superb for the money.

    Posted by Paul Seddon on 22nd Apr 2018

    A great entry level gyuto. Handle a little on the small side but the blade is beautifully sharp and the angle of the handle makes it easy to rock chop.
    VG-10 isn’t as hard as other Yaxells but given the price I’d have another tomorrow.
    A brilliant knife with a great edge. Personally I’d wonder why the more expensive range is worth it for the keen domestic cook such as myself.

    Very good value

    Posted by Karlsson on 13th Mar 2017

    I've used the knife for about a month now and it's still very sharp. Delivery was faster than expected delivery times. The knife looks and feels amazing and you can't believe it's only $89. Great value for the price.

    Satisfied so far

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Dec 2016

    The package arrived in only 6 days to my country in Eastern Europe. Had only trouble with the customs of my country, who took more than 2 weeks to process the delivery.
    This is my first serious knife as an amateur and so far I am greatly satisfied with it. There are no visible damages on the knife out of the box, it is very sharp; it feels completely different than the knives I have used so far.
    Aesthetically it looks exactly like on the pictures, it's really beautiful and well done.
    I will update this review if anything worth noting happens.

  • Great Knife... Hocho is Execellent Company!

    Product: Shikisai MIYAKO 33 Layer Damascus Deba Knife

    No doubt that Honcho sells fine tools for the trade. The workmanship is excellent and the edge is frighteningly sharp. 

    Honcho is an excellent company and I will be buying more items from them. Once you see the'll find it was worth the wait. Honcho gets an A+ from me.
