With the distinguishing shape of the tip, this larger chef knife is as good doing fine cutting jobs as it is working with larger pieces of meat and veg. It's a very solid all rounder we already love.
The longer blade glides through in one pass rather than needing more back and forth which can sometimes be time consuming and inefficient when prepping your food.

Some measurements such as HRC are provided by the manufacturer and should therefore be used as a guide.
