Sharp and easy to use. They come apart a little too easily if you're cutting something heavy-duty, but it's really easy to figure out how to get them back together. I used to have a different pair that were like puzzle pieces and I couldn't always figure it out.
There are times kitchen knives and scissors just won't do the job when cutting up meat, chicken, etc.. Fortunately, shortly after I struggled cutting up a whole chicken, I saw this advertised and from the description decided it was just what I needed! It is very well made, does a good job and will last me a lifetime. Am so glad I saw this on your website!
Top quality knife made of sgc steel that is very sharp and retains an edge for a long time. Beautiful knife with a great feel. Made in Japan, this is a high quality knife. Michelin rated chefs also use Yaxell knives.
I'm a bit of a knife junkie. Serious regular cook that likes the tools of the trade. I was not familiar with this brand and had been looking for one of these smaller ******** to add to my collection. I had seen the Shun but thought I'd try this first. I was not familiar with this handle composite but like it very much. It has just enough surface texture to be stable when my hands are wet. I also like the slight amount of extra heft in this handle. I sometimes find that the super light knives like the Global ones are just too light. The Shun of this size feels too insubstantial. This has a nice balance - you know its there but you wont fatigue using it. The hammer finish and wave line detail on the blade make it super pretty. I can tell I am going to loose this one to my wife. I was also surpised at the great edge out of the box. I often want to get new knives to a whetstone before I use but this one was ready to go. Well done.
