- verified customerKnives are a very personal thing to a chef. I do NOT like my general purpose knife to be longer than 8.5 in., it just doesn't feel right to me. My heart sank when I took delivery and realized I had done my english-metric conversion wrong and ordered a knife that was 9.45 in. rather than 8.2 in.
It's a *STUNNING* blade, so I figured it's not as big as the 10 F.Dick, Henckels and Globals I've used, I'll give it a go and if it doesn't feel right worst case scenario I can sell it to a colleague or give it as a gift and get the 210mm for myself. (Mark and Susan are laughing at me now because this on top of my chaotic ordering process they so graciously dealt with).
As I said, knives are *very* personal tools and as it turns out, this knife is the perfect: weight, balance and length to be a true extension of my hand that moves through prep as if it weren't there to the point that my co-workers and I were making very crass metaphors.
I couldn't ask for a more perfect blade.
I started by looking for a more affordable analogue to the style/composition of a Takeda blade and found my newest perfect work tool.
I can't wait to see how this stunning blades appearance will evolve and change over time as patina develops.
I imagine it will only get better.
