I've become a big fan of MAC knives and this JU65 is a cut above (Ha!). The first thing you'll notice is the beauty of the blade. The blade is well stamped; its just wide enough and the handle is quite lovely. Very solid and well built. This is a knife that will last a life time.

Nest, you'll pick up the knife. For me, the first thing that shocked me was the weight; the knife is light, wonderfully so. As any great knife should, when you hold it it feels right, like an extension of self. Note I do have small hands so as with any knife, you really should try holding a few from the manufacturer before purchasing. Anyway, I digress, the knife is fluid in my hands; the balance is near perfect for me and my hand does not get tired after cutting veggies.

Which leads to the final and most important point; does it work? The quick answer is yes, it works beautifully. MAC is known as one of the best brand of knives out there and the vegetable knife delivers. In spades. It easily goes through anything I through at it. Plus I find that this knife gives me better control on my cuts so that when I want to practice my elephant ear cut or matchstick its actually a little easier using this knife (which makes me think my next knife will be a Chinese cleaver). I can't really explain why this is, it must have something to do with the balance of the blade to handle. In any case, the knife is sharp, well balanced and cuts through vegetables like they are butter.

You really can't go wrong with this knife, for the price its a steal

This is a great knife! Sharp as hell and has stayed sharp for a long time, with just routine steeling. I work in a kitchen professionally and this knife cuts the mustard and much more. The wide blade surface is great for transferring whatever it is you are slicing/chopping/mincing/dicing/ to whatever you need to transfer it to. It feels good in my hand and has stood up as far as toughness is concerned. Highly recommend this knife for pros and home cooks as well. Have fun.

I've owned this knife for 15 years and it is indispensable. No other knife measures up to the quality, ease of use and overall performance. It keeps its edge and it is super comfortable to use. I cook every day from scratch with lots and lots of vegetables. This knife never lets me down. Love it!!

This knife works great for hard to cut vegetables like butternut squash. Just remember to use it carefully-- it's very sharp!

I now have two of these, just in case something happens to one, I have a back up while the other is getting fixed. This is the main knife that I use in my kitchen, and it is fantastic. You can't beat a MAC knife, especially this one!

I am a woman with small hands. This knife fits like a glove for me. The handle is the perfect size for small adult hands. The balance is great and it slices through root vegetables of all types with very little effort. I'd recommend this knife to family and friends.

I bought this & was terribly disappointed. Yes, the knife is sharp...but the handle is too light to use with tough vegetables like butternut squash or rutabagas. Because of the sharp blade, I would hand wash it and dry it before I put it back into the box for storage. Well within 1 month the blade started to corrode: tiny spots along the blade. When I emailed the company which sold the item, I was told they can't do anything because I used it.They would not take it back nor give me a refund. Then I emailed the company that manufactured the knife and till this day, never got a response. Don't bother purchasing a knife that corrodes after a short time use, let alone form a company that doesn't back their product. From now on...stick with the quality made German knives!!!

I got this as a gift and while it is a great knife, I found it to be not as comfortable with the round handle. I have a Mac chef and paring knives and I love both of them quite a lot, I suppose part of my not giving this 5 stars is because I like the other knives better.

I also have a Kiwi brand knife that Is similar to this one that I picked up from an Asian store for $6 and actually like using that one more than this one because it has a regular handle and seems to be a lot lighter. Although the kiwi brand knife is not as sharp as this, it's not bad either.

Again there is nothing wrong with this knife, if I didn't have my other knives I am sure I would have loved it. Having said that, I loved getting this knife as a Xmas gift and will definitely use it for years to I come,
