The handle fits my hand well and the knife is very well balanced. It is extremely sharp and looks great!
Very sharp let's see how it holds up so far so good nice weight nice Ballance very comfortable
I have a couple professional chef knives, but this one is now my one go-to knife for virtually everything. It slices through an onion practically under its own weight, and I slice onions and veggies paper thin. Also great for fine cutting raw meats during prep work. Razor sharp, with a great balance, it feels like an extension of my own arm!
Best cooking knife i have ever used
Beautiful to look at and a pleasure to use.
Beak knife I have
I GOT THE KNIFE better than I th.ink,Thank you
I would recommend these knives highly. They are much better than Global and other brands. The edge, balance and feel are unsurpassed. They are worth every penny.
Yoy can shave with these knives
Wonderful knife, I have the set and all are of high quality and would recommend to all.
The wait was long but receiving you experience the perfect knife blade. The sharpness is exceptional and being made of Damascus steel I know it will last my lifetime. The service and communication with Bokashi is wonderful. I can't wait to show them off to my chef friends just to make them jealous. Bokash's presentation in the box is impressive and when you hold the knife you experience the transshipment in the manufacture. I recommend Bokashi knives with the utmost fervor.
I love my new Damascus steel chefs knife. I am a novice home owner who loves to cook and I love my new chefs knife!
Fantastic blade, balance quality steel. Have had and used German blades and another Japanese blade. These blades are just better!
Long wait time but having knive made to order is expected to take some time. Quality is awesome and worth waiting for
This was a Xmas present to my son. He's an executive chef in Greenville SC. I started him on his journey with a 6pc. set by Global. A few years later a set of Shuns. This past year he informed me about your knives. I was very impressed in design and thoughtfulness used in the process to create this tool. Thank you so much for the smile you put on my sons face.
I'm on disability with limited funds. If and when you might put the 8.6" chefs knife on sale please let me know. I've already started my knife fund.
Wife loves it
Took a while to get but worth the wait
Although I am not a chef I can say I do appreciate quality cutlery. This 8.6" chef knife is superb for my kitchen needs. I am extremely happy with the edge, appearance and the way it feels when being used.
I may not be elated with the time it took to arrive at my door, but I can say now that it is in my house I'm thankful it was all I expected!
Very awesome blade. Feels comfortable in the hand and I always say a sharp lade is safe blade and this is VERY sharp.

Excellent steel - easy to keep sharp. Perfect balance and a great handle - Some of the best cuts I've ever made

Trustworthy seller and honestly priced fine product is just icing on the cake of overall shopping experience.! George, Atlanta, GA
Never had one of your knives, but now enjoy it completely
Great knife! Super sharp. A little heavier than I expected. I own Shun knives that are much lighter. Bokashi is well worth the price. I do wish delivery was faster about 2 months.
Ok thank YOU so much for the great knife
Very nice blade. Extremely sharp. Hope it holds the Edge. Great so far
My wife doesn't care much for the kitchen. I let her try the knife out , and she says she understands why people like to cook so much. "It's all about having the right tools!" Looks great, great balance, and extremely sharp! I love it.
Nice blade and very good handles
A truly beautiful knife.
Great product . Very impressed with the Cost / Quality .
This knife is as beautiful as it is razor sharp. The Damascus pattern (I believe it might be waterfall) is absolutely gorgeous, and cutting anything is completely effortless. It was totally worth the wait to receive this beautiful knife.
So far it feels great in my hand but I haven’t used it yet on a heavy prep day that requires me to use the knife for 8+ hours straight yet to see if it will stay comfortable in my hand for type of usage.
Beautiful! Very well balanced. I Have Arthritis from years in the Gym Cutting with my New 8.5 Makes it effortless on my hands and wrist.
Can't be more satisfied.
Customer service was spot on!
Well made knife, well worth the wait. Sharp, fits in my hand nicely, and makes cooking just a bit more painless. Thank you Bokashi knives.
it took a long time to get it but I am very happy with my Knife.
Knife is great, still waiting on my last order.
Excellent high quality knife.
It took a while to finally get my new chef's knife but it was well worth the wait. The steel is beautiful and the edge very sharp. I hope it maintains its edge like advertised. The knife not only functions great it is a piece of art. Thank you!
Love this knife its comfortable and very sharp
Love this knife, very sharp best one I have ever had.
Just afraid of trying to maintain that razor sharp edge.

Love these knives, best we ever had
One of the better knives I every purchased! Two an a half month wait to receive but well worth it! Recommended for anyone looking for a professional blade.
Great knife , good looking...
Excellent quality knife, well balanced and super sharp.
Been in kitchens for 20 years and I also know my steel. Truly a must have for any real cook.
I laid a chicken breast out flat and then sliced sideways with the knife. No hesitation at all. I cannot believe how sharp that knife is.
Very well balanced. Easy and comfortable to use.
I am very pleased with the Knives. I became a wee bit impatient but, they were well worth the wait...
What a fantastic Knife! I purchased one for my friend who is a chef and he is very impressed as well! I will be adding more Bokashi Knives to my block!
