  • This knife is the best blade I have ever used in the kitchen. Whether you are slicing onions finely, or whether chopping herbs this professional knife makes it child's play.
  • This blade is razor sharp so use the sleeve & end clip when storing.

What customers say about "Features"
Dalstrong Gladiator Series German HC Steel - 8" (200mm)
  • This knife definitely puts the Chinese blade smiths on the international map of knife making. Worth every penny!
  • Dalstong knifes are pure quality, i was very skeptical because of the price but after learning that im buying direct from the factory which means no store mark up i was SOLD.
  • It really stands up. No more daily sharpening. I am so happy and can recommended!
  • Beautiful, hefty, razor sharp, nicely balanced and just a joy to use.
  • The handle has a lovely weight to it and the balance is perfect. Pinch grip right at the bolster feels just right - the extra heft of the handle feels gone.
Wüsthof Classic chef's knife (blade 23 cm)
  • The handle material is tough. I like the full tang construction. It assures this will last several life times.
  • The handle is made a very comfortable material, and even though we're bad owners that run in through the dishwasher, there has been no looseness in the handle. It resharpens easily.
  • Sharpens easily, grip is comfortable, and bolster allows a sharp blade all the way to the heel. And prevents finger cuts from slipping up the heel.
  • The handle of the blade rides high enough off the cutting surface to permit easy chopping without finger contact.
  • Low quality blade and cheap plastic handle. For this amount of money it is absolutely shocking.
