I’m bought this knife for my wife and to be honest, when it first came in I was a little disappointed with the weight. I like a heavy knife and this is a much lighter knife than I use. I got put in my place quickly when my wife started using it and fell in love with it! She says it is perfect for her since her hand doesn’t get fatigued when cutting and chopping a lot of ingredients. It’s a good looking knife and so far holds it’s edge well.
