    Highly recommend it

    Posted by Bruno on 11th Sep 2017

    Knife arrived razor sharp (this is probably an understatement) and ready to use. We've been using the knife with just about everything just to feel it cutting through so easily, no matter what. So far, edge retention has been outstanding as the blade is still able to peel a tomato.
    Only downside is the tiny manual comes in Japanese. Thankfully, numbers are sort of universal and we were able to squeeze two very important pieces of information 1000/15°, which could be safely assumed as 1000 grit wet stone at a steady 15° angle, to keep the knife in optimal condition.
    Looks wise, it's a work of art. We love it.

    The Knife

    Posted by Greig M on 12th Aug 2017

    This is not just a knife from Walmart or bed bath and beyond, or wherever you can see the attention to detail yes is it ridiculous to spend a lot of money on a knife if you're not a professional chef working at a restaurant Maybe. But when you have a passion and love for cooking and food like my fat self does you mean a great night and this knife is amazing, I have not sharpened it in the three weeks that I've used it and had it and I refuse to put this knife to a steel kind of disrespectful to the people who made it. But I'm not thinly slicing tomatoes or anything like that I'm cutting up meat filleting fish with it chopping up hard vegetables with it and it is like a laser beam like a damn laser. There's a very awesome knife it looks very good and it performs better than it looks. Thanks to Hocho for all the help with my situation of the shipping and thank you for bringing these knives to people all over the world. I will be spending more money on more knives I will be getting all my knives from here on out. Next up is the iseya G Series gyuto, santoku and Petty knife. Thanks for the knife again and if you're looking to buy one you don't have to buy this one necessarily but you should buy one from hocho peace out.

    Cheapest shipping grrrrr

    Posted by Greig M on 12th Aug 2017

    First thing and most importantly is not about the knife, but shipping my wife got this for Father's Day / my birthday and it took forever to get here because she got the the cheapest available shipping. Please do yourself a favor and spin 30 to 50 bucks for shipping to have it here sooner. But let me say this HOCHO-KNIFE DID A AMAZING JOB HELPING ME WITH THE SITUATION.They are good at getting back to and willing to help you when need amazing people. And if you think this is a fake post or put out there by somebody that works there you can go f yourself I'm real and I'm about to do a knife review.

    excellent value and quality

    Posted by Josh on 25th Jan 2017

    The knife came perfectly packaged and much more quickly than I would have expected from the other side of the world.
    The factory edge has remained shaving sharp after 2 weeks of use, and is aided by the thin profile of the knife overall. The finish is exceptional, with no noticeable gaps to be felt along the rivets,and the steel is mirror polished. The handle is more comfortable than one may expect given the glossy finish, and is in my opinion the best on any of my knives.

    Yaxell YO-U 69 Layers VG-10 Damascus Chef Knife(Gyuto) 210mm

    Posted by Mark on 20th May 2016

    First impressions were the shape, very pleasing lines.
    The handle feels amazing in hand, extremely comfortable. Blade looks amazing and was very sharp out of the box.
    Cutting is a breeze with this knife, it glides through everything I have thrown at it, an improvement on my last blade a Tojiro DP Gyuto 240mm,also a very fine blade.
    Have been using this knife for the last 4 weeks and only gave it a quick strop today to bring the edge back to a razor sharp finish.




  • 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.
