With stainless steel blades and never any rust, this knife for less cost than other name brand is certainly the leader. I had a Sheffield years ago and loved it. When I lost it, my wife replaced it with one with the name and at much increased cost. I tried several after that and they all failed to meet the quality, sharpness, and value of the Sheffield. Home Depot droped the knife from their stock and I finally tried Amazon and I am now fully satisfied with my new Sheffield. There is no better knife and if you lose it, no better knifr to replace it and none to match its value.
