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.
*Small scratch on side of blade, not very visible and won't affect use of the knife at all*
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.
The stainless, powdered R2 steel used in the blade construction is very thin which lends itself to taking a very sharp edge and is hard enough to handle daily use without needing to worry about its strength.
There is a specially made saya to fit this knife.
