One of the best values in 8" chef’s knives out there. If I had $100 and needed a chef’s knife in this length,this is the one I’d get every time. Mac handles run smaller and fit both my and my wife’s hands well. I like the thin blade geometry (2mm at the bolster) and the blade is sharp Out of the box and stays that way for a long time. The dimples do nothing,but they look nice.

I have fancier knives but this is the one I use 95 percent of the time.
It was not particularly sharp out of the box but some work the the EdgePro gave it a very nice edge.
Retains an excellent 15 degree edge but not a 10 degree.

Super sharp! This was a big upgrade for me from my German knives. It wasn’t a wallet killer,so that made it an easy decision.
Great all-around knife,sharpens easily to a razor edge and holds it fairly well. My only complaints are that it could use a bit bigger handle and I wish I would have went with the 9 1/2".

The knife was purchased for a wedding present so I didn’t use the knife. I couldn’t help taking it out of the box to inspect it and see how it felt in my hand. If I didn’t have a extensive set of Wustoff classics and looking for a Takeda soon down the road I wouldn’t give it a second thought as a personal purchase. What I can say however is that the service and delivery provided by Mark of Chefknivestogo was,as always,first class. I have corresponded with Mark regarding questions about sharpening stones,various knife products and Mark has always responded promptly and in a courteous,professional manner. I wouldn’t purchase a knife anywhere else other than from Mark at Chefknivestogo. Thanks Mark.
i’ve had a henckels pro and new wusthof with the PETec edge. they’re nice,solid well build knives,but for performance,the MAC blows them away. it’s lighter,more agile,and so much sharper than i’ve ever experienced. cuts an onion like it’s butter. looking forward to making a lot of things that require a lot of knife work! thanks Mark for the great service.
