Just an amazing knife. Incredibly thin and light. Glides through food with no wedging. I found this a bit long at 277mm; though it was still incredibly light,I am operating in small quarters. I solved this problem by taking it to a pro knife shop and having them shorten it to about 260 -- though the tip is now not as thin as intended,the knife is so thin overall that itís not an issue for me. I think the length would be just fine in a pro environment or for someone with plenty of counter space. Though I have other knives,I reach for this one 95% of the time as it is such a pleasure to use.
