Looked nice, cut well, literally fell apart
The tang began to wobble then fell out of the handle after maybe two weeks of light use on various vegetables. I’m lucky I didn’t lose a fingertip when it failed on me.

The SharpEdge Kuro-Uchi arrived in a rather endearing and aesthetic gift wrap and provided an overall very nice unboxing experience that would make one of these an exceptional gift. The knife itself is quite light, and has a hand-made appeal that is easy to be charmed by. Sharpness is excellent and the thin blade and balance lends itself well to making quick, precise cuts. I haven't used it enough yet to judge how well it holds an edge, but I imagine it will do quite well given the good factory grind and hard steel. The blade will rust VERY easily if you don't care for it carefully, so I recommend keeping a light layer of food grade mineral oil or something like Ballistol on it at all times when not in use to protect the edge. This will help keep moisture out of the wooden handle as well which should help over a long lifespan. After about a week the blade came loose from the handle, presumably due to the extremely dry environment where I live shrinking the wood a little bit. Easily resolved with a small dab of hot glue and a gentle press of the tang back into the handle. You can likely get a better purely utilitarian knife for the price, but not one with this knifes charm.
