I'd been looking for a super sharp knife for cooking, and been disappointed by some fairly expensive purchases I'd made recently (knives which didn't stay sharp, proor quality handles, poor balance, etc.). I took a punt on this, after reading some of these reviews - it almost looks too good to be true.
However, a month or so later and I'm loving it. Now looking to add a smaller partner to this one. Sharpness is excellent, and it stays sharp, more to the point.
