This knife has A LOT of rocker to it, curve to the blade. If you like that shape and action to your knives and dicing technique, this is a fantastic knife, great steel, wonderful handle, good heft, sharpens to a razor, fun to use. Personally, I collect kitchen knives for fun and choose different shapes for the different advantage of each design. Each is a sort of history lesson from hard working chefs from cultures around the world. French and Japanese knives stop at the cutting board; German just keep rocking. What do you like? I enjoy both. If you are looking for a little different design and some excellent German steel, here it is. I prefer a 10 chef but grab this one all the time anyhow. F. Dick is under appreciated by the general public. Try a 1905 and you'll see what I mean. An 8 Chef knife of this quality at this price is a deal. I have large hands and a female friend has very small ones: we both own and loyally use 1905s and they somehow work very well for both sizes.
