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.
So after doing a pretty extensive amount of research online about budget knives, watching dozens and dozens of videos and reading reviews, I chose this knife out of a list of about 5 knives in the $10-$20ish range for a friend at work who was tired of using the beat up knives the kitchen supplied (no routine care on these old Victorianox and Dexter budget knives). Long story short after she got hers I had to order not 1....not 3......but 6...SIX more for co-workers that wanted a decent knife for the house or to use there at work(the handle colors are nice). The Grip is awesome, good for long prep sessions with every grip. It is Sharp and retains a edge even after a case of peppers on a solid silicone cutting board. Blade might be a bit on the brittle side as the tip will bend easily if dropped, but easily sharpened back out using a cheap-o hand sharpener and steel. If you need a Decent prep knife on a budget than this is my go to.
It's my 1st chef knife so I don't have anything to compare it to, it's ok, it's very sharp I watch YOU TUBE to learn my knife skills, HOWEVER I paid $13.95 and it has increased in price u should be able to buy a good chefs knife for $15.00 without all the bells and whistles for beginners
