Quality is according to the price. Knife visually ok (have plastic handle), but no more. Myself higher diameter (eg Yoshikin Global, another Japanese knife with buffalo horn bolster, etc.) and thus can this knife here, of course, absolutely not compare. I wanted the knife but did not use it as a daily chef's knife, but only for "work" for my "better" knives are too good. Whether the knife rust or not, I was therefore first matter (but strongly suspect that they corrode relatively easily). The knife block itself looks at first glance okay, but is not exactly robust. Material and paint appear to be poorly reflected in the price more or less. Knife block has been sent only in original box, without proper packing material and therefore came to be damaged. Unfortunately Exchange on Amazon was not possible. Conclusion: 0815 Knife for people without claims, but at a yet reasonable price. Who still does not want fancy have trouble (because of stainless knives or damaged knife block), should leave it alone. Yet from me three stars because the knife for the rational use at this price are quite attractive.
