This is a perfect little utility knife for the budding chef in your family. MAC knives from Japan are well known for their value and overall quality of construction. The MAC Knife Chef Series of cutlery is a value-priced line made for a variety of tasks and users. It features the same molybdenum alloy as the original MAC series of knives. Like their higher priced siblings, they also carry a 25-year limited warranty from the manufacturer.
The knife is 135mm in length and works well as a small utility knife, steak knife, or large paring knife. It has very comfortable handle and an overall fit and finish that totally belie its price. It is a true all-around blade for many kitchen tasks. It is small enough for intricate work yet long enough for slicing and chopping most medium sized ingredients. It is a light/medium weight blade with a good symmetrical grind which offers up clean and precise cuts. This is undoubtedly a high value item and a great introduction to Japanese blades for those used to traditional Western knives.
