Rated 1 out of 5Â by Theprastus Bombastus Bladerunner knife: bright but short life.
In paper, this knife seems too good to be true. It cuts almost as well as a Henkel 4 star. The handles are similarly super-comfortable and very well balanced. The labels are genius. But my Santoku is already dying, I can see the handle starting to split at the bolster. Unavoidably, moisture will make it to the neck, and it won't be able to dry due to the closed design. The high carbon steel is not perfectly stainless, and it will start to corrode. And the narrow neck will just split in two. Hopefully, not at the worst time. That's how its (identical) succesor died, and this one is, after a couple years, starting to go the same way. Definetively, this beautiful knives have a design error that results in awfully short lives.

I've had this knife for 10 months, my FAVORITE! But I use it about 4 times a week and now it's breaking at the handle where the knife connects and the knife wiggles. I really hate that I have to send it in because we use it a lot. I also don't wanna buy a new one to send the old back...

While I received this product for free, the opinions and thoughts included in this review are my own.
This knife is the perfect size to cut just about everything you need....I've used it on meats, fruits, veggies and everything in between. It's sharp and effective. It's also comfortable to hold and despite being 7 inches long, easy to use. I used to shy away from knives this size, but this one makes cutting easy. Cooking is easier when you have a great knife and this is the perfect one. If you don't have a LOT of knives, that's okay, this one will do so many tasks you can keep the clutter out of your drawer.

I now own three of this knife...two are in constant use in the kitchen, the other is carefully stored away for later when I want to replace one of the knives I'm currently using. That says a great deal about how pleased I am with everything about this fine cutlery item. I've even had family members and friends try to 'borrow' mine as they too love the look, feel, sharpness, and precision of the knife. (note: I ended up purchasing additional ones for gifts for family) No one will ever give theirs up. It is superior to all of my other 'name brands' and is the one I 'go to' without fail, day in and day out. You will love this blade, I promise!
