This knife may cost a lot, but if you or your family cooks much than this is the knife to have. It is very sharp and a dream to use. Why keep replacing cheaper low quality knives when you can get this type of quality.

Marcia Evans

This is a beautiful, well-made knife. It couldn’t be sharper. For these reasons I give it five stars. But I’m returning mine. It is great for all the reasons the reviewer’s gave it five stars. But I purchased it to cut root vegetables and it hasn’t enough heft for that. I’d like the weight of the knife to do my work for me, and this knife is nearly weightless.

CAT Lady

This is remarkably lightweight for its size, which is the reason I bought it. I have another knife this length, but often find it unwieldy for my (female) hand. This knife feels almost weightless! It’s razor sharp. I cannot speak to the longevity of the edge because it’s still quite new. I do like the feel and balance of the thing, though.


An incredibly balanced multi purpose knife which is very sharp. Ergonomics are great and the slight radius allows one to rock it for chopping. I highly recommend it.
