Ain't she a beautiful?

Looks nice, I suppose. But from looking at it I think that bolster would be very impractical for a proper grip. Then again, I haven't actually held one in my hand so that's pure speculation from looking at the pic.

blade too German for me but I do like the furniture quite a bit

Looks heavy as fuck but I'm with you, you don't know a knife until you hold it. Gotta reserve judgement until you use it to shank someone in the back for stealing your skittles.

Germany produces some high quality steel.
The custom Damascus stuff they make is very beautiful as well.

How can you tell its weight without being able to see the thickness of the blade?
>>
>>8425225
A: it's german
B: it looks heavy
>>
>>8425232
A: Ok, fair enough.

B: Doesn't compute. You can't see how heavy it is with only a straight-on side view. With only a side view we have no idea how thick the blade is and therefore the image provides no information whatsoever regarding weight.

You also can't tell if the carbon steel runs the entire length of the handle, which would make it a garbage knife.

The only thing we know for sure is that the website in the OP is complete shit, tells you nothing about the product and should be dismissed. Still it looks heavy and by the time and investment they put into their website I'm willing to question the "carbon steel" as well.

Looks like a duck, smells like shit.

>>8425252

So not only are you claiming it "looks heavy" without any idea what the 3rd dimension looks like, but you're judging the product based on the appearance of a totally unrelated 3rd-party website that has nothing whatsoever to do with the maker?

There are things wrong inside your head, anon.

Would you buy shoes online without knowing if they fit? Moreover if a company allows their product to be sold on a 3rd party website that is complete trash, what does that say about their passion for their product?
>>

>Would you buy shoes online without knowing if they fit?

Of course not. But I wouldn't judge Company A's product by Company B's advertising.

>>what does that say about their passion for their product?

Absolutely nothing, because the maker has no control over what unrelated 3rd parties do with them. And even if it did, I've long since learned that passion for a product has little if anything to do with its quality.

Some German Anon in here recommended me the Zwilling Pro chefs knife some time ago. Got it for christmas and I've been using it for some time now.
While it certainly isn't the sharpest knife out of the box, still got to get me some stones, the handle and shape are awesome, the weight is pretty good and overall quality seems very decent for the price. Thank you kind Anon.
I'll get myself a nice Nikiri soon, thinking about the Murata with a western handle. This one right here to be exact.

Looks like I'll be able to get it for about half that price.
Good idea, or should I look for another knife?
>>
>>8425257

I have to agree, you're fucked. the only thing German means in this context is the broad, curved shape of the blade. the thickness and weight vary considerably from maker to maker
