This knife slices meat, tomatoes and bread with equal ease.
These knives are solid and I really like the way they feel in my hand. The santoku knife makes chopping vegetable so much easier than what I was using before. The handle on the paring knife is a little longer than most, but that's a plus for me.
I bought this knife for my husband to use when he is grilling and smoking meat. I researched a lot of knives and this one was highly rated (and less expensive). Who knew that a good slicing knife would cost up to *** I paid *** for this one and it is worth every cent. It slices through meat like it is slicing butter!
