Retired Tsukasa Hinoura River Jump 165 mm Santoku
Review by J, F. on 24 Jun 2020review stating Retired Tsukasa Hinoura River Jump 165 mm Santoku
Purchased during the spring 2020 Garage Sale. This knife was gently used for a long time, undoubtedly much longer than expected! A well earned "retirement". It arrived fully refurbished, with loads of character, an incredible edge, and ready for many more years of service. The original fit and finish must have been perfect. The damascus steel is a true work of art and really is "the real deal". A blade guard was thoughtfully included. Several days of use throwing every task possible at it and this knife really shines and holds its edge. Excellent feel and handling in a pinch grip. The only tasks it didn't handle well were ones that required a longer blade... 165 mm being a tad on the short side. This knife will see heavy use without the concerns that would normally accompany the using off a new knife of such artistry and expense. The Garage Sale is a perfect way to get great performance at a fair price. Regrets? Only that the original box was not included.
