The Dexter-Russell Basics P94802B 10" cook's knife has a black polypropylene handle and a high-carbon steel, hollow ground blade and can be used to chop and slice foods. The blade is made of high-carbon steel, which is harder than low-carbon steel and resists corrosions, stains, and wear to maintain its edge. The blade is hollow ground with a concave, beveled edge for sharpness. The handle is made of polypropylene, which resists impacts and wear, can be wiped clean, and is textured to help prevent slipping. A finger guard helps keep the user's fingers safely away from the blade. The knife measures 15" long overall, with a 10" blade and a 5" handle. This product meets National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) Standard 2 for use in food handling and processing.
Dexter-Russell manufactures cutlery and related accessories. The company, founded 1818, is headquartered in Southbridge, MA.

I recently ordered this one as a gift. When it showed up, the thickness of the spine was significantly thinner than the one I bought years ago. I assume the company has changed their design over the years. I wound up keeping it for myself and getting a different knife for the gift.
Now both 10" knives are in the knife block. Even though the handles are identical, I can immediately tell whether I have the old or new one just by how it feels in my hand. I would still reccommend the knife, but be prepared. If you're an old fan of Dexter-Russell, this is a cheaper version of what you bought 10 years ago.
As a chef, I will tell anyone that these are the types of knives you are likely to find in most kitchens--at least those in which I have worked. While I proudly own a set of pro series J.A. Henckels knives, I as often reach for the Dexter Russell knives (I have a cooks knife, paring knife, and oyster knife) because they are easier to clean when working with a messy product, and are easier to sharpen if they begin to lose their edge.
I would invest in a whetstone with these knives, and I would learn how to use it. A knife like this that endures heavy daily use will last a great deal longer when properly sharpened every other week.
Additionally, the 10" length is likely far larger than most home cooks are used to--the 8" cooks knife or even a 7" santoku blade might be a safer, more maneuverable option--the most important aspect of a knife, in my opinion, is that it feels comfortable in your hand, lest you risk injury.
A knife Must be:
Quick & Easy to Sharpen. Many expensive knives are miserable to try to sharpen.
Have just a bit of flex to the blade, this helps when crushing garlic, cutting around bones etc.
Dishwasher Safe. I like the white plastic handle very ergonomic and easy to see that it's clean.
A knife must have a good blade design. This 10" size with a bit of a curve to the edge is perfect!
Dexter Russell 10" Cooks Knife Has Everything I require in a knife.
It's also a fantastic value. I have used many knives that cost ten-times as much that weren't half as good. This knife is so good that I take it when I travel.
I would recommend this knife to beginners, prep cooks, students, and for household use.
