5 people found this review helpfulSimply put, this knife is the best value for money anywhere. Having said that I'll talk about some of the drawbacks:
The handle is super cheap and small, not ideal for big hands.The steel has a bad tendency to chip. I broke the tip of this knife twice in the first day i had it, once while sharpening and once while cutting a pineapple. Edge retention is also not super great. I am a professional chef and to keep this thing razor sharp I have to take it to the stones every night. Also there are all of the drawbacks associated with highly reactive steel.
However, when you get this baby sharp it is about one of the sharpest knives you've ever used. It's like owning a used sports car from a bygone era. You got it for a suspiciously low price. It's super temperamental and breaks often, but when you get it fired up just right there's nothing more exciting.
