Just used it today to slice up some veggies for my lunchtime salad. Man is it sweet, almost slices by itself. Also the handle is kinda D shaped and fits the right hand like it was molded to it. :) OK, where's the raw meat!!! Hehehe! :shock:

Not sure what you question is. This is a forum within TalkBlade
dedicated to kitchen knives.

Recap:5.0 bought a particularly interesting example. BtB asked some questions and a link was provided.

Although the same knife is no longer available at the referenced site,
others similar but smaller ones are.
