I was deeply surprised by the performance of Hayabusa SG2 series: super thin laser construction, rounded choil and glides through a potato like a butter. It almost reminds me of the much loved Ryusen SG2 (red handle laser line). However, the Hayabusa SG2 feels a better finished product, as the handle is a very nice micarata with bright colored liner, the F&F is also much improved.

Hayabusa means Strong and Fast in Japanese, which greatly sums up the characteristics of this line. Made in the Seki city of Gifu prefecture, the Hayabusa originates from the same areas where Shun knives are made.
