Pros: Overall Quality, Design, Sharpenability, Sharpness, Construction, Material Quality, Durability
What a fantastic little knife! First, it's simple. It's a blade and a handle, all that a knife needs to be. The blade is not quite full tang, but for its intended use, the construction is plenty strong. Let's talk geometry. The full flat ground blade tapers to a fine tip. This knife was meant to slice like nobody's business, and it does. The 12C27 Sandvik steel takes a fine edge, is easy to sharpen, and works as well as my Henkels kitchen blades. The beechwood handle is nicely finished, albeit a bit on the small side. The smallish handle is fine for everyday cutting, though I did get a blister when I cut up a tough butternut squash with this knife. I use this knife for food prep in the kitchen, and to be honest, I hardly miss my larger kitchen knives when I do. This guy is not a tough outdoors knife, but a fine slicer for the kitchen and general utility. I love using it!
