Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not the best. I purchased this knife several years ago for motorcycle and car camping. It comes sharp, is very light, and packs well. The biggest problem with this knife is that the included sheath (a necessary piece of equipment in a knife you intend to stick in a bag) does not stay on the knife at all. It can just fall off leading to damaged other goods or peoples. Further, for LESS money, you can get a KAI brand "Pure Komachi" santoku (or other) knife that is made with good Japanese steel (KAI is the parent company of Shun) and comes with a much better sheath that won't fall off. Weight is comparable as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this "Asian" knife! I use this for car camping, not for backpacking. This thing is easy to clean and very, very sharp! Very light and is way better than kitchen knife. Very compact and love knife guard case. Cut anything like bread and butter. Love it. Will buy it again if it disappears. Must have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp, light, right price Nice, sharp 440 steel, compact design with a lightweight sheath, and not any more expensive than a decent-quality regular chef's knife. Saves my good kitchen knives from getting messed up outdoors and my favorite pocket knives from getting gunked up with food. Great for car camping.
