We began looking for a smaller Chef's knife for her. First we tried a very inexpensive 5-1/4" stamped and bolsterless Santoku. The size was close, but the handle was awkward, and the edge on the blade was a gimmicky forever sharp type factory stamp that couldn't easily be re-sharpened.
Next we tried a Hampton Forge 6" Tomodachi all purpose knife. It was bright orange with a non-stick coating on the blade, and came with a plastic sheath making it easy to store in a drawer. It was an inexpensive stamped blade with no bolster. The size and fit of that knife was excellent. However, the steel of the blade was too soft. I could get a decent edge on it, but nowhere near as sharp as my other kitchen knives. And since the steel was softer, it wouldn't hold the edge I gave it for very long.
Finally we tried this knife, and I'm blown away. This knife is a full tang forged blade with an ample bolster and excellent weight and balance. It is the perfect size for her hands, and the comfort grip is outstanding. More impressive than that is the blade. It is made of hardened stainless steel that takes and holds an edge well. It arrived promptly, and was incredibly sharp right out of the package. Being me, I couldn't help but hone the edge a bit on my steel, and wow, it took a razor sharp edge that you can actually shave with. My wife tried it out by chopping some veggies, and loved it. The size, the fit, and the sharp edge were an instant hit. She even commented that she thought her new knife was sharper than some of mine.
The only thing I would note is that, as others have mentioned, it is a thin blade. The width of the spine at the bolster is comparable to more expensive knives, but it tapers and gets fairly thin at the tip (but not crtically so). However, I don't see this as a problem. In fact, I find it to be an asset. The thinner, hardened steel easily takes and holds a razor sharp edge fully from tip to heel. And the thin blade means less force required to push a thinner wedge of steel through the food you are preparing. This increases the perception of the knife's sharpness as it takes very little effort to cut through even the thickest of root vegetables. We are very pleased with this knife and very happy that our search for a perfect Chef's knife for my wife is finally over. We highly recommend this one!
My husband does a lot of cooking, and he's gotten very particular about his knives the more he watches shows like Chopped and Master Chef. Today, he made my son and me laugh by chopping some garlic the way they do on those shows, with the knife slamming up and down in rapid fire. But after we stopped laughing, we noticed the garlic was chopped BEAUTIFULLY, and the knife didn't seem to notice that it had been slammed up and down on the chopping block. We had formerly bought some cheaper chef's knives, and we noticed that after about two uses, they had to be sharpened or they were functionally useless.
This OXO knife does not seem to suffer from that problem. After a solid week of heavy use, it appears to be every bit as sharp as it was when we first received it.
2. rubber handle is nice and comfortable
3. light and easy to use
4. blade size is perfect and seems like a thicker steel
1. after having this for about 3 weeks and using almost daily, it's almost dull...already
2. because of the "grooves" on the knife i am not sure how sharpening will hold up
