Great for the price
on August 17, 2011
I've had this knife through two full summers of use at a professional kitchen job. It is very easy to sharpen/hone with a decent steel. Cuts on most vegetables are very easy. Meats and larger vegetables/starches require some effort. The knife is very light and does not have the heft necessary to go through very dense food quickly. It still gets the job done, but I wish it had some more weight at the heel and thickness in the spine. Chiffonade and julienne are effortless with proper technique. Overall it is very balanced if you use a pinch grip, I have had no strain issues with the knife unless I am pushing myself to go extremely fast. A minor setback is that when chopping with a rocking motion the front of the knife tends to cut into the cutting board, sometimes making for inefficient cuts.
For the price, you can't beat it.
