My wife loves it

My wife was always afraid of using my Japanese knives, considering them to be "big and scary," as well as being concerned about maintaining "carbon steel" (she used China-made German-steel knives which I consider to be heavy and clunky). So I bought her this 165mm Yoshikane SKD Tsuchime Santoku, and told her it was hers to do with as she pleased; I would sharpen it, but wouldn't complain at her if she didn't immediately wash and dry following use (it's not like she would leave a knife out after use for hours, but she thinks I go overboard about knife care; I assumed the semi-stainless core of this knife, with the stainless cladding, would stand up well to minor neglect, and it does, developing a beautiful patina on the core steel). She was skeptical at the beginning, but she has grown to love this knife! First, it is "pretty." Second, it is smaller than my 240mm gyutos , so not intimidating, and she appreciates how light and nimble it is compared to her formerly favorite knives. And third, it cuts well and holds an edge! When the 210mm gyuto comes back in stock, I intend to purchase one of those for her.
