Pros: Overall Quality, Design, Sharpenability, Sharpness, Construction, Material Quality, Durability
By far my favorite kitchen knife
Used as an overall kitchen and canning knife. I've used the 8" slicer for several years. It takes a wicked edge and holds it well. I like the steel and find it easy to hone quickly. The hickory handles are easily gripped and do not slip in my hand when covered with sugary juices. I've tried it against ceramic knives and prefer it most always. It is used on anything one might find in the kitchen: cooking, canning, dehydrating, slicing meats and on all fruits and vegetables. I like the way it is made: 8* length, flatness of the blade and how it curves to a sharp point. The only thing I wouldn't use it for is cutting bone. The knife is a joy to use. I've made this order as a present for a kitchen orientated friend.
