Posted By: SFSteveReceived this knife mere days ago and my initial impressions are thoroughly positive. I dithered over the purchase for quite awhile but, though it's early days yet, I'm glad I took the plunge. Rustic in appearance (I regard the unique hammer marks pattern like a fingerprint that sets my knife apart from all others), the blade arrived astonishingly sharp. It almost melts through food, and I confess to whittling my way through several sheets of paper just for the fun of it. Dicing up the first brunoise was a kick, too. Fit and finish on the oval handle is very nicely done. Aside from cosmetics -- and I get that this finish is not to everyone's taste -- I'm not sure what more I could have expected in terms of performance had I opted for a costlier selection. Looking forward to incorporating this knife as an integral member of the kitchen arsenal.
