The things I like best about this knife are the relatively wide blade (compared to other 10" chefs knives), the balance and weight, the shape of the handle (seems to conform to my large hands particularly well) and especially the lack of a bolster, which allows you to use/sharpen the entire edge of the knife. I've bought them all (shun, Global, kyocera, wustof, furi, etc.) I don't know the last time I was able to use one chef's knife for a month let alone 3 without wanting to try something else.With this knife, I'm done buying chef's knives, its perfect.

I purchased this on the recommendation of Chef Michel Courtine. It is very sharp, as expected, and time will tell how the edge will hold up. But I did find the knife extremely well balanced - better than I had hoped. It easily becomes an extension of your arm when using it. I'll be buying other forged styles.

Very thin blade and sharp. Nice curve to the blade. Great addition to my kitchen. Recommend it as a LARGE chef's knife (I'm more comfortable with the 8" for every day cutting).

WOW, what a difference. Cuts through everything "just like butter". All my chopping issues are greeting with glee, no longer the "this stuff will be all over the board" woes. The job goes fast and easy.

Slices dices chops and cuts through any and everything I may desire. Including fingertips. Use the correct knife skills and you'll be fine, you won't be able to use any other knife!!

This product ranked #1 by chefs participating in a blind test for a popular chef's periodical beating out all the self acclaimed top tier brands. I have been using Victorinox before they bought Forschner and they have been making knives longer than most. Always the best balanced and the perfect stainless/carbon blend blade that keeps it's edge. I hardly ever used a stone on it back in the day and now-a-days I use a hand held portable sharpener. 2 swipes at most on the coarse and 3 on the fine honing slot and she razor sharp with the perfect angle and ready to go!
Like any good knife that is carbon/stainless mix, keep it away from the hot water super charger used in most restaurants today. Do not put this in the dish machine or on a sharpening wheel as it tends to over heat the blade as well and it will discolor. It is stainless, but not surgical so keep that in mind.

I bought these as groomsmen gifts and now I want one for myself. The knife is big, really big, but if you have big hands and want to take on a big job, then it will feel fine. The weight is heavy which it should be for a knife this big, but it is easy to maneuver and control as long as you have some skills. It is sharp out of the box, only time will tell if it holds the edge for long.

This beautiful knife is perfectly balanced. You just move it through food--cutting is effortless. Everyone else has reviewed it in more detail, so I won't repeat them. Suffice it to say, I just can't get over it! I wish I'd bought one of these years ago.
