Bought a mukimono: paypal payment, quick delivery to UK, knife arrived in a good packaging. Great vegetable knive, it has come enough sharpened, with oil on the blade to avoid stains and rust. Very light (133 gr.) and thinner than an Usuba (3 to 2 mm alongside the back of the blade), it allows a great slicing, precision works thanks to the pointed tip and a fine katsuramuki. Magnolia wood D-shaped handle; the plastic bolster is tighter than the handle, but bear in mind this is the basic (and cheapest) Sakay Takayuki knives' model. There have been some problems with the site's account, but the owner followed me by email step by step. This store deserves a better web site. Overall, I am totally satisfied. Definitely a bargain.
