6 people found this review helpfulI picked up this knife as a thank you present for my mothers-in-law for everything they have done for our family over the past few years. They are confirmed home cooks with nice German knives in the drawer. I wanted to get them something with better performance, yet not be too large or intimidating that they'd shy away from using it. I used the Chromax for a few days before sending it off to them and was very impressed by the performance of the knife. There was no wedging, only smooth slicing. The out of the box edge was impressive and I don't think I could improve upon it. It blew through the usual suspects from the vegetable kingdom and made ultra thin slices of raw meat stupidly easy. The profile of the knife is neutral, with a nice flat spot but enough belly to making rocking possible if that is your thing. The knife looks great and the handle is tight and confidence inspiring. The knife handles with agility and ease and I was impressed by how easy it was to use the knife. I'm not a big fan of western handles and this one didn't change my mind at all. But, if the knife had a Japanese wa handle I'd have gotten one for myself as well. The knife feels like a scalpel and it is an easy one to recommend to others who would like a western handled, high performance knife. As a last perk, the price is awesome.
