      fantastic knife, August 2, 2020
    Posted By: Jesse Taylor

    I'm a professional cook and work in a kitchen from sunup to sundown. My knife has to be well-built, balanced, take and hold a razor edge and be comfortable to use. This knife answers the call, and then some. The steel is beautifully thin and hard, and makes slicing really anything a breeze. For those that need high performance and are willing to pay the price, this is your knife. I'll add that it shipped and arrived faster than perhaps anything I've ever ordered online, and that when I called chef knives for a sharpening question the owner was totally helpful and really knew his stuff. Overall a fantastic website, a fantastic price and a fantastic knife.

      Extremely well made knife., August 1, 2020
    Posted By: Joe M

    Being a carbon steel it is reactive, but as long as you maintain good habits in the kitchen it's easy to control. I have a small hand towel that I use to rest the knife on, and make it a habit to wipe the blade between ingredients. When I'm done, I wash and dry it immediately. It developed a nice patina but never rusted. I use it daily. The only part of the knife I'm not crazy about is the handle. This is my first wa handle, and it might not be for me. I use a pinch grip, and my forefinger tends to rub against the square shoulder of the blade, since there's no bolster, and after a long session with it I can develop blister at that spot. But that's not the fault of the knife - it's extremely well made beautiful (if you like the rustic look) and blister aside, a delight to use.
