Wow. Great knife for the price, and a pleasure to use.
Service from Yagi Hana also spot on.
So far, this stone has demonstrated the performance and quality I have come to expect from Japanese (and German) tools over the years.
Great customer service from Nick and my new Tadafusa Nakiri is a beautiful knife. Sharp straight out of the box and has become my go to knife for all my vegetable prep. The handle is comfortable, the blade looks amazing and the Tadafusa Nakiri is well balanced, I love it.
Super nice. Nice thin blade perfect for what I was after, just a great little all rounder knive. Huge plus was the unbelievably good price
Great knife! Arrived sharp and ready to use. Will order again soon!
I absolutley love my knife set. They make cooking prep a dream and look like art. I have them on my magentic knife holder that is attached to the wall in my kitchen! I was uncertain about getting high carbon steel knives due to the care they require but they are stainless steel clad which means only the edge is at risk and even if it does discolour it just adds to the beauty of the knives, but they are really easy to care for just wash with soap straight aftet you have finished choppin. I will have these for life, a great investment! Nick is absolutley amazing he answered all my questions in detail including about shipping to the UK! Thank you Nick! Will definitley buy from you again!
The knife was as good as described and definitely perform better than expected for the price. It was great that it came with instructions in English on how to care for the knife as well.
Very sharp and nice feel. Versatile knife and good value. Very pleased!
12 months on, this is still the best knife in my kitchen! Stays sharp and I use it to cut everything.
Great product and great service. Would definitely recommend Yagi Hana Retail to anyone looking for a good quality knife.
Personally love the design merging western and traditional Japanese elements. Out-of-the-box sharpness was great. Have not used the knife extensively, so cannot speak for long-term performance, but assume sg2 & micarta will stand the test of time.
Best retailer in australia for all your japanese knife needs. Couldn't thank them enough for their fantastic customer service and help - will recommend to everyone I know!
Nick has been so incredible to deal with, and can't believe the quality of this incredible knife - i've never seen anything like it! Definitely buy from this amazing company.
These knives are the best..always great service and the best knives I’ve had/have..great craftsmanship, would recommend to anyone..
I have been very pleased with my knife.
A handle is very comfortable and easy to use.
I absolutely would reccomend this knife.
Great service too.
