One thing to note and watch out for is that the back of the knife has very precise 90 degree corners and is not rounded off. This caused me a little trouble when cutting with my index finger on the back of the blade. I got a couple little cuts on my finger before I gave it a couple of passes with a sharpening stone. (or dulling stone in this instance) After that I haven't had any issues.
I am writing this review as I just found and purchased the Update International 10 inch Cooks knife which I believe will be another excellent addition to my kitchen for just about the same low price.
Update International KP-09 High Carbon Stainless Steel Cooks Knife, 10-Inch
The 10 inch Cooks knife has no reviews yet but I will add one once I have had a chance to put it to the test.
You don't have to take my word for it. Throw down that fifteen bucks and get one for yourself. You will not regret it.
As a side note, if you're one of those people to buy complete sets of knives made in Germany from big box stores, you're doing it wrong. Get the right tool for the job. If you work with meat a fair amount, you understand. A boning, butcher and scimitar are the essentials. Cleavers and saws are great help for the tasty steak cuts. Beyond that in the home kitchen, a SINGLE serrated edge (for tomatoes, basically), a chefs knife and a paring knife are about it. That's six pieces, tops, excluding the cleaver/saw (because honestly, how many of you really break down whole animals?). Going for the 12, 20, 36 piece set...you're just getting bowled over by the sales pitch. Questioning the quality of the steel? I'll tell you that a whole day of splitting chicken halves, over 300 or more, this knife holds up just fine. Spine doesn't mar with blunt impact and the edge keeps for every 30-40; simply hone it and back to work. Handle feels quite comfortable in the cut glove/latex combo. Albeit, usually don't wear the cut glove in the action hand, just the maneuvering hand.
Hope you reason the same. Enjoy your cuts!
