Care and handling of Millennia cutlery.
The performance of a knife can be diminished if it is not cared for properly.
Cutlery should never be washed in a dishwasher because intense heat and harsh detergents may cause the handle to deteriorate. Carefully wash by hand with soap and warm water, rinse and dry with a soft towel. Do not soak or submerge in water for long periods of time or use chlorine bleach because it can pit and discolor the blade. Avoid soaking in aluminum or stainless steel sinks because these metals may cause pitting on the blade.
Store in a cutlery block or sheath to preserve the cutting edges and prevent injuries.

The grip is great, I can hold it in a whole variety of positions depending on what I'm cutting. And my wife, who has smaller hands, has no trouble with it, either. You can see better on the non-black versions that the two materials of the handle have defined zones. The body of the handle is hard plastic, and the top and bottom sides are covered with grippy rubber exactly where you need it for the standard "handshake" grip for vertical cuts. Between the rubber, just before the blade, the plastic is also textured with raised dots to ensure that a pinch grip (great for sideways cuts as with cake layers) won't slip. And that's the same on both sides—if it weren't for the direction of the serrations, this knife would work equally well for lefties.
The contour of the handle keeps your knuckles above the blade edge without the awkward extra metal of an offset bread knife, and because it's a wide (or, really, tall, from the perspective of using it vertically) blade, the top edge of the handle still lines up well with the spine of the blade.
The blade itself is nice and stiff, with very little flex. I understand not everyone likes that, and not for every task, but this is a great knife for straight, clean cuts; it is not a fillet knife! It is, as has been mentioned elsewhere, fairly thick at the spine for that reason—but the body of the blade is entirely wedge-shaped, with no square cross-section at all, and because of the width (or height) of the blade there's a good distance for that taper to happen. It comes down to a reasonably fine edge before the serrations are ground in to the right-hand side, and while the real tip of the blade is blunt and round like any slicer blade, the "tip" of the edge ends with a sharpened straight section that both finishes off draw cuts nicely and doesn't scar the board.
Is it sharp? Of course it's sharp. And the serrations are wide and easy enough to run the corner of a rectangular stone over to keep it that way. But the points are the real workhorses, and as the ATK folks said, fewer points means more pressure per point, means it works better. I make my own sourdough, and whether the crust is thick and hard or thin and crisp, this goes through it with little effort and minimal mess. But watch your fingers, and have a board under the knife. It will scar your countertop, quite easily!
