I ran into this knife when I was actually hoping to find one of those short Japanese sushi knives with the nice little wood sheath. A nice multi-purpose portable knife. I have a lot of small pocket knives, but but one of the most common uses I end up needing them for is food. SO here comes a great idea: a small kitchen knife with a sheath!

But there are some problems that could easily be fixed with little or no cost:

1. The handle guard hangs down below the blade, while a food knife is usually better if the blade hangs down so it can chop flat onto a plate or board.

2. The handle is shorter than the blade, but a short kitchen knife (ie, paring knife) usually gives you a useful handle length with a short blade. To make it worse, some handle length at the back end is wasted with that stylish drop-down bump, which is right where my pinky wants to sit.

3. The sheath has no drainage hole. It's basically impossible to give the sheath a good inside cleaning. Plastic sheaths for many hunting or utility knives often have a small hole at the end, so you can flush it out all the way just by holding it under the faucet. It's like trying to clean a cup by slowly filling it with water and pouring it out. Not very sanitary for somthing I want to use for food.

4. The plastic is cheap. Oils or alcohols are causing red stains when I wipe them on a paper towell. That means the plastic is not stable. Not only is the sheath difficult to clean, you have to be worried about what you clean it with.

5. The steel isn't that great either. It was sharp when new, but that didn't last very long and when it was time to sharpen it the thing just didn't want to get sharp.

I have had this knife for many years - kept at my desk to slice fresh fruit. It was so liked by co-workers - someone absconded with mine while I was out of town. So I am back to order several more. The blade stays nice and sharp - easy to clean - and the blade is right sized for small tasks and reduced risk of cutting fingers. I love the cover and knowing that visitors to my desk are protected and blade is not exposed while not in use. Highly recommend this knife!

This near-razor sharp little knife is a great kitchen or camp tool and a handy self defense item for a lady's purse or concealed carry: The built in plastic sheath has a friction fit that keeps the knife safe until it is extracted for use as a deep slashing or stabbing edged weapon or innocent looking apple slicer.

I was looking for a small, inexpensive kitchen knife with a sheath to keep at my desk at work. Technically, this meets all the requirements, but misses the mark on quality.

When the knife arrived, it was not sharp at all. My husband tried to sharpened it for me, but the knife is still incredibly dull. I've used it to cut apples in the office, and I'm always worried that I'm going to end up injuring myself because I struggle so much with this knife. Save your money and go for something better.

My wife had this knife confiscated during checkin on a flight. She put it in her carryon by mistake and the TSA agents grabbed it. I had used it for over 15 years for tent camping, car trips, motel camping and general all around knife. I looked everywhere on the web and finally found the exact same knife by Joyce Chen. I don't remember ever sharpening it (probably would have helped) since it always cut when I needed it. The cover is great to keep from getting cut/clean when I travel with it. I bought an extra one for backup incase there're not available some day. A really great Handy Little Knife (appropriately named). Also cleans easily and doesn't rust.

Bought one of these over 30 years ago and it has served me well. Thrilled that the product is still around and purchased three of them to give to my friends. I particularly like the protection the sheath offers, keeping the blade sharp, protecting the blade from damage when it is in my gadget drawer, protection for me when I am rummaging in the gadget drawer, and safety when I am transporting it to an event where I will be using it. I take this on picnics and wine trips - so handy for slicing cheese and fruits.

I love this knife. We've had ours for about ten years and we take it with us when we're going on trips and picnics. It is extremely useful for slicing meat, cheese and bread; for spreading butter and cream cheese; and for cutting and peeling fresh fruit and vegetables. The blade has remained sharp over the years and it's small enough that it easily slips into a picnic basket or a cooler. The sheath fits well so you don't have to worry about it becoming accidentally separated from the knife. It's easy to clean. It's perfect.

Yikes! If this is little, I'll just order a samurai sword as a bread knife! But it seems to be a good knife that could safely be taken with a lunch. Just be certain to clean well every time so as not to get junk up in the sheath, which would be hard to clean.
