Light as a feather and with a distinctive carbon blade this knife is a delight to use as well as to look at.
About as large a chef knife as you might need, the long blade performs very well working with bigger bits of food like potato or cuts of meat as 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.
