I purchased this for my bestie who is a chef and she says she loves how easily this knife cuts all of her veggies, this knife is beautifully made and the shipping was very fast. I will be purchasing all of my future knives from here!
I use this vegetable knife as a chef knife and it does the job more than done, unlike my Chinese cleaver you can do rocking motions since the tip is not pointy.
I bought this for my boyfriend for christmas and he absolutely loves it! Shipping was super quick too despite it being so close to christmas!
This knife is super lightweight, I've been using it for about a year, I barely sharpen it and it stays extremely sharp. I definitely recommend it to people who cut a lot of vegetables. I just have a good time cooking with it.
Nice alternative to santokus, versatile and very precise slicing.
