|Exceptional knife. |

I am the cook at a small school and cut fruit all day. This knife is more than up to the task. It's beautiful and deadly sharp, and it's great having a non-reactive knife when cutting things like apples, which take on the taste of some carbon steels. Unlike the blade body, the edge IS slightly reactive, so you do have to keep it dry and oiled to avoid discoloration. The handle is narrower than I expected, which is fine for fruit and looks rather elegant, though it makes the knife tougher to hold when cutting through heavier fare, like sharp cheddar. For its intended purpose, though, this is a perfect knife.

There are few knives that sing when they are first held and used, for me this is the first one in a long time. The balance, the edge, the aesthetic are all exceptional. I hope to find more in my collection sometime soon.
