Pros: Design, Construction, Material Quality, Sharpness, Overall Quality, Durability
This is now my favorite smaller knife. It is so sharp, light weight but strong and easy and fun to use. It cuts everything easily, even harder things like a huge stem of cauliflower. It also cuts well through apples and the peel, which can be a challenge for some knives, as well as celery and bell peppers which the peel can also snag lesser knives. Another feature about this wonderful tool is the rounded end which has already saved me one poking accident I'm prone to. If one is cutting through a thick vegetable such as raw broccoli stems (this knife works like a charm there too) sometimes the hand holding the veggie can get poked with the sharp end of the knife doing its duty. Not with this little gem - the rounded end prevented any injury. The rounded end also helps cutting which is hard to describe but in cutting out a soft spot from cauliflower, it did not dig deeper with the sharp end rather just cut where I wanted, using a circular motion. My words do not give the best description but this feature is one you might notice & appreciate when using this knife. I've ordered a second & may buy more as I love it & would like to replace all my small knives with this one. Another plus - it's made in Germany, NOT China. I'm sold. I'm sure it's like other Wusthof knives and sharpens well, I've not had to do that yet.
