This is a seriously sharp knife - I've already cut myself badly on its bigger (10cm) sibling and came to the conclusion that the 8cm one (same size as my old Kitchen Devil knife) would be easier to control (I'm quite clumsy!). And this has proved to be the case. The black plastic handle has a slightly disappointing cheap feel, but in careful use, the knife works well. It's the sharpest knife I've ever used, equally at home chopping, slicing, peeling or scraping. Recommended, provided you don't lose your concentration (and potentially a finger!) while using it.
Having used this knife for about a year, I can say without any hesitation that it's definitely sharp - A couple of people in the house have learnt the hard way to mind their fingers! The knife also seems to be of decent quality, as it looks and works pretty much like the day I bought it. The only slightly disappointing thing (for which it lost one star) is that it's not really dishwasher safe, i.e. from day one you really need to wash it by hand (being careful with your fingers!) if you want to avoid any rust spots.
I bought one of these knives for my wife exactly a year ago. Since then, it has been used daily - in fact it's almost the only knife she ever uses - and it's just as sharp as the day it was bought. So why buy another? Because my wife suddenly began to worry that she might lose her original Victorinox knife in the Christmas run-up and she couldn't face being without it. That says it all, I think.
Good quality, simple knife, not crazy sharp to the touch but it can definitely cut well through vegetables. As a paring knife however it isn't totally ideal since the wavy pattern makes it hard to peel things like apples. However for cutting vegetables and tough things it's great.
I ordered two of these to go along side the same knife I have had for over 5 years. I use them for chopping all types of fruit, salad and vegetable. They are amazingly sharp which makes life very easy but do watch the fingers as the slightest touch can cut the skin!! Highly recommended!
I previously had one of these knives but unfortunately must have mistakenly thrown out with rubbish so immediately ordered another as was very pleased with knife, although a light knife, it is very sharp and is great for slicing tomatoes and onions.
