Hello all! It's time for me to stop lurking and start posting. I have a Naifu D67 santoku from https://www.chefsknifestore.co.uk/ Initially, as other posts I've read, I was quite skeptical. The whole site reads like a bad TV ad. And "Naifu"? Really? Nonetheless, It's my first and only knife and I've stuck with it for about 5 years because, well, it does a pretty good job in my home cooking. I cook quite often, so the main reason for exchanging it is that it's getting kind of boring to look at - and I just bought a bunch of second-hand copper pots which now look like a million after a good polish. A little about my cooking I mostly slice and stir fry everything. Mostly vegetables, with the occasional boneless meat. So I never do any slicing and carving of big stuff. I mostly cut in a rocking motion. I think Western knives should actually be better for this? I do however like the width, so as to shovel stuff with the blade. About the knife Feels quite balanced with a center of gravity right before the black grip, which by the way is silicone. It's not mahogany, but it feels great. Its around 220 g. Certainly heavier than most cheaper knife-set santokus I've held. The blade feels quite thick and extremely durable. Practically impossible to bend and I've even used the heel edge as a can opener. I guess the D67 is the steel type. No idea if this is good or bad. It's only been sharpened a couple of times, and otherwise it's been a run-off-the-mill honing steel. Not ridiculously sharp, but it doesn't just squash tomatoes. The edge is supposedly left-handed. I don't know the specifics. Something I had done at a professional sharpener. The Damascus finish looks kind of superficial and I feel it's worn out over time. I don't know if this is to be expected. Generally it looks okay. Finally, it's £79.50 Conclusion It's a pretty solid knife. Is the price reasonable? I have no idea. I guess it's about the same as a Shun, which people generally speak of as slightly overpriced and underperforming. Finally, here comes my question Could I do much better in this price range, for this type of all-purpose knife? Ideally something available in Europe, as I live in Denmark.
