    the nenox really is a lovely knife. I think I might go with Masanobu, but the Corian handle is really nice.

    The Corian is beautiful.

    The paring knife feels like an extension of my hand--like I'm not even holding anything.

    Who cares what kind of knife stinky ol' Matt has. If you're looking for name recognition, I'd suggest these.

    It's 5".

    I purchased a stone along with the knives, obviously. I got a double sided one, as someone on here had suggested: 1,000/6,000.

    I also was shown how to properly sharpen the knife by Mr. Sugai, the co-founder of Korin. Of course he made it look extremely easy, but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it.

    isnt that more like a petty? i have a 4.5" one and it's a little too big for peeling veggies and fruits. i kinda want a smaller knife, but i guess i dont need it

    I'd work on even vegetable cuts first.
