We're very impressed by the work of Kawatsu-san. Out of his shop located in the mountains Fukuoka he's produced some very clean looking knives using Haisu, or high speed steel, that takes and holds a very sharp edge. These knives are very thin as well which contributes to a great cutting feel. The enju handles are ones you most likely won't see a lot of which gives this knife a very unique aesthetic.

A tall blade provides lots of travel on your knuckles and a flat profile makes lots of contact with the board making this the perfect knife for vegetable chopping. Flip it over and use the flat spine of the knife to scrape ingredients on your board into a neat pile then use the large surface area of the blade to scoop and move ingredients into bowls, pans, Tupperware etc...
