I got the 5" Santoku with VG-10 Damascus steel. It's gorgeous. Sharp. Well-made. The handle is dense and the wood is beautiful. It feels heirloom-quality. I hope to be using this for decades.

I am also impressed, first "real" knife(not some blade from the ""block"") you got to be handy with the steel if you know what I mean, earn your keep. sorry too many beers lol. I got the Nakiri, razor sharp out of the box, balance/weight is perfect. The folded(Damascus) steel is beautiful. Pakkawood handle and form is very comfortable. I am not a knife guy or a chef, just a husband/dad of a family of 5 who was tired of slicing (chicken) and veggies with what the fam turned into butter knives. Super happy with this purchase. *aside; dude I suggest you get a sheath for the blade 7-8" should work, and keep the box aside as its just a paper wrap..

Feels cheap and unfinished

Bought the nakiri last drop to replace an aging Japanese knife that suffered years of abuse both at home and in professional kitchens. It wants honing with each use - which, really, most knives do - but with that, it'll cut through most anything you could ask of a vegetable knife with ease. Blade does show streaking after cleaning, though this has no impact on use, and the blade was a tad thicker than I expected. It's thickness is closer to my Wusthof, not the other Japanese knives I've owned or used, so it felt a tad heavier than I initially wanted from a Japanese knife. With that said, I'm very happy with it, especially now that I'm used to it and through the mourning period of my old knife. You really need to spend quite a bit more money to top this on quality.

Great knife for the price. Awesome for chopping veggies. Seriously this is a great knife. This is the 7" veggie w/TPR handle

Slightly smaller/lighter feeling than a Shun Nakiri. (Which is better for some situations, and sometimes not) When finished with a whetstone and a strop, it pings to a type of sharpness no cook would ever complain about. Best 30 something bucks spent on a knife. Do yourselves a huge favor and invest in a leather strop. Massdrop ought to do a drop with Burrfection. His homemade strop has been the best friend to my Japanese knives. I use it for touch-ups, as well as to finish whetstone sharpening to near surgical sharpness. Your knives, food, and wrists will thank you.

Good but streak marks develop the sides

These are an impossibly good value. I really really mean that.

I got the nakiri last drop and I am thoroughly impressed. I've been around Japanese knives for the past 7 years via a work friend. He has lauded their quality to me at great lengths. He also gave me a 7 inch chef's knife and recommended I get a nakiri since I am a vegetarian and mostly cut veggies.
Out of the box, this knife is a razor edged workhorse. It sliced through tomatoes cleanly with ease, as well as any other veggie I have thrown at it. The edge is wicked sharp!
After a month of daily use the edge could use some honing but it is far from dull. I highly recommend these knives.
I can't speak to sharpening them and the difficulty involved yet, but so far I am happy with my nakiri.

A REAL WINNER HERE MASSDROP. I have to say I may have a bit of a problem when it comes to knives, whether it's in the kitchen, my office desk, everyday carry, yard work, the garage, etc. I have Henckels, and Shuns, Calphalons, Cutco, several hand forged-walnut burl beauties, antique cleavers, SOG, Kershaws and Ka-Bars BUT this thing just may be the most comfortable knife I have every held. From the moment I first held it I knew I made a wise decision in buying this knife and hiding the purchase from my girlfriend. SO COMFORTABLE!!! I got the cleaver style one with the dark wood handle and they way the bolster tapers to meet the blade just fits my hand so perfect. I'd like to think it's what I would have done had I designed it. Way to go Massdrop a real shining example of good product selection amid the tactical and ridiculous items I see here daily. Oh and it came wicked razor sharp.

got the 7" Veggie knife. Wow, I really love this thing. I have several Shun's, and, Henckels, and a Wustof or two. I'm not a chef or an expert. I just like to cook and prep and this knife is a joy to use. I'll need to see how well it holds up over time but I have no reason to doubt that it will do quite well. Extremely pleased with this blade in every aspect.
I bought 2 knives for myself, and a third for my daughter-in-law. I *LOVE* my knives, and love the knife that I bought her. I haven't given it to her yet. These are quality knives. I hope she realizes that this is a high quality knife and takes care of it properly. These are the kinds of knives that I have always wanted, but could never find in a store.
THANK YOU, MASS DROP!!

My girlfriend who is a chef loved and her smile convinced me that the knife was A-class. Hard to please her with kitchen gifts (unless they're cheesy) and the detail and quality of the knife was evident the moment i gazed it.
