These knives are great - the Deba knife was unexpectedly heavy for a Japanese knife but this is probably a wrong expectaion on my part having never owned a Deba knife before - I was expecting this to be similar to a Chef's knife. Otherwise these knives are fantastic. Chef's was a good experience - they didn't have these knives in stock and over-promised on when they would have it delivered by. They changed the expected ship date twice and it took about 1-month more than expected. But I was in no huge hurry and their service was excellent in keeping me informed of each change in date and in offering me alternatives. Customer service was very good... Overall good experience - I would use Chef's again.
