This seems much less solid than my original. The quality seems as if the production was moved to the far east but the price stayed in Europe. Parts that were once solid seem flimsy ans some metal parts have been replaced by plastic. The quality is just not what I expected, even the wooden handle is rough at the edges. I wish they would have left the design and product quality as it was. The reason I bought that one was because the family have always used this brand, my next one will be a different brand. Why do companies insist on making a quick profit at the cost of ruining such a well established brand. I hope no one got a big bonus for reducing manufacturing costs because they probably killed the long term sales.
