Brilliant monochromatic colors make the Pure Komachi 2 series a real eye-catcher. But all that fun-loving color has a serious purpose too. The color-coding makes it easy to choose the right knife for the job. It also helps guard against cross-contaminating food; color coding can help to prevent you from using the knife the knife you used to cut meat now on the vegetables. The bold blade color is achieved by bonding food-safe FDA approved resin to high-carbon stainless-steel blades. This non-stick coating resists corrosion, makes cleaning simple and helps the knife glide through food with ease. The Pure Komachi 2 color-matched handles are lightweight and ergonomically contoured for a comfortable, fatigue-reducing grip. Incredibly sharp and decidedly attention-getting, Pure Komachi 2 knives make a delightful addition to any kitchen. Covers included.

The non-stick coating on the sides makes a huge difference- it just glides through food. When it's sharp, you can cut an overripe tomato into neat rounds with this knife (most other knives would just squash said tomato as the sides dragged through). I have quite a few knives, but this has become pretty much the only one I use for anything smaller than a head of cabbage or a loaf of bread. What do I use for those? The other, larger knife in the same series.
There are only two downsides to this knife: 1) the blade is thin and flexible, so you can't really use it to pry (for example, to remove avocado pits), and 2) it seems to get dull faster than some of my other knives. But, hey, it takes five minutes to sharpen a knife, so I don't really care whether I have to do that every month or every three months...
This is a great knife, especially for such a low price!
With that said, I do think it could have a better design. It's a bit big and not well balanced. I cannot grab it like a regular paring knife. I feel like I will cut myself. It has slipped a few times out of my hand and landed on my arm. I have two cuts already and I've been using it almost everyday since I cut up fruits for juicing and also to pack for lunch, so I wouldn't say it's excessive cutting. I would like to see a more slip resistant handle with a bit more balance and just a tiny bit smaller to be able to curve it nicely along round fruits.
The part about being a bit smaller could be the fact that my hands are very tiny. My husband says it works perfectly for him and he has much larger hands than I do. So maybe you should take that from this review that the versatility of the knife may be dependent on your hand size. Overall, though, a great value. Cannot beat the price and it's great quality if we are talking about sharpness and looks. It comes with a little plastic cover so you don't have to worry about sticking your hand in the knife drawer and getting your fingers sliced. I would buy it again even after knowing it's a bit big for my hand.
I use it primarily as a paring knife for my fruit and vegetable...but honestly ----it will cut just about anything in your kitchen-- steak , potatoes , sandwichs , ends of turnips , leeks or peel them instead....or do both.
Sharp blade nice and thin helps this small fry do its work.
Perfect angles of design in the blade setting angle and the handle angle make working with it easy ..
The weight makes of it is ---light as a feather when cutting or peeling things.
I have always hated the phrase "Go to " !!!....................
But in the case of these Komachi Knives---I believe that it fits them well.
Comes to you wicked sharp and holds a nice edge.
If you want the best paring knife, get the model 40811 "rabbit" knife from Victorinox, also available from Amazon. I have had one of those for 20 plus years. It's great. Pretty much the perfect parer. Best handle for the job, perfect blade.
