Cutlery for the performance obsessed. A tough knife which takes a killer edge, and holds the edge longer.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Blade is sharp from the box and the 3 layer construction is visible with the VG10 core showing for the first 8mm from the blade edge.
Balance is just in front of the handle so great for a pinch grip and the knife feels weighty in the hand but not too heavy.
Probably not the best value at full price, but I am happy with the package given the significantly discounted price.

It was so sharp that I had to constantly tell myself to concentrate as I was paranoid I might accidentally lop off one of my fingers, haha. But cooking was actually fun with this knife! I'm so glad I took the plunge and bought this! They're amazing and worth it!
Full disclosure : I've yet to try other brands extensively though but I can't imagine that many beating this knife at this price point. I may edit my review once I've received my Wusthof Ikon knife (bear in mind though that the price is almost twice as much).
Don't expect miracles if you take it out of the box and start hacking at carrots with the factory edge. But then again, you wouldn't do that, would you? Because you know better.
For the value you can't beat it, you're looking at $375 - $400 for something comparable from Korin.
Just don't write too may good reviews or they'll raise the price.
I was fortunate enough to get this blade on sale for under $100 on Amazon!
I totally recommend it
It powers through celery with very little effort, I tried it on tomatoes - extremely thin slices, ditto for onions, cucumbers and apples.
I consider this the perfect vegetable knife. I'm sure it would be fine for other tasks but I am extremely fussy about my knives and I believe in using the right knife for its intended task.
I have arthritis in my hands and can't grip some knives comfortably. This feels good and secure in my hand and the sharpness of the blade means I do not have to use a lot of effort to slice, cut and chop vegetables of various textures.
I hand wash it immediately after use and actually keep it in the box it originally came in just to keep it in the best possible condition.
I understand the nakiri knife is more of a specialty knife, not used as often as others. But for chopping vegetables or making paper-thin, straight cuts, it is very well-suited and the MX3 is a premium product.
