Knife edge has been professionally rebeveled and honed by myself to 21°/side, then finished on fine leather strop to hair-whittling sharpness (12k grit). Blade is strong but very light for its length, with a slight flex, making it in my opinion very useful for fine minces as well as slicing. A very well-balanced, full sized German-style chef's knife.For those looking for a go-to workhorse in carbon steel, this guy might make a good soulmate knife for all main kitchen work. Unusually springy and light in the hand, it's a pleasure to use. The item "Refinished Carbon Steel Chef's Knife, 10" is in sale since Monday, May 23, 2016.
