To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is without a doubt, the sharpest knife I have ever used. I've had other so-called 'good' knives that cost way more but never held their edge- THIS one cuts right through potatoes as if they were butter! I'm not kidding- There's no resistance even with hard vegetables- It GLIDES through them as though they were butter! I've never used a knife like this... Perhaps it's because the edge is like a razor. All I know is that I'm moving my other knives out of the drawer since this is the only one I like. I got a paring knife from them and will get some steak knives too. This is one of the best purchases I've ever made!
Purchased the red and black version of this knife and was NOT disappointed. Extremely sharp, slices tomato and onion paper thin, even had no problem cubing up an entire pound of bacon in less than 5 minutes. I find it highly unlikely one would find a better chef's knife for this price point, and after using it for four weeks, I can say that I would have paid twice the listed amount for a knife of this quality.
However, beware of just how sharp this knife truly is. I cut my fingers several times, not while slicing vegetables, but just simply by accidentally *brushing* my finger against it in the drying rack. The cuts were paper-cut thin, and not dangerous, but one could easily remove their entire finger without exercising caution. Luckily, I had also chosen to purchase a Mercer Culinary 8-inch knife guard when I made my purchase, or I would have definitely injured myself trying to take the blade from my kitchen drawer.
This knife is incredible! I started looking for a knife and saw the reviews this knife has. I stopped looking and ordered. Wow the reviews are correct. This knife is so comfortable to use and sharp. So sharp that this morning I went to dry the blade with a paper towel and it shredded the ends of the paper towel into little pieces. I can't imagine doing that with any knife. I will be ordering different sizes. Wow!
This is a really good knife for the price. For most homes, this knife will last a long time and be a favorite. For me, the handle isn’t the best ever due to its bulkiness but I am accustomed to super pricey professional knives. At home, non professional cooks will no doubt love this knife.
