    Worth the wait!
    As an amateur chef, retired heart surgeon and knife collector, I have always been interested in knives that are razor sharp, hold their edge and are well balanced. The aesthetics of the design, choice of materials and grip size are all wonderfully combined in this outstanding 6"" Kramer chef's knife.
    I have watched this knife with great anticipation since it's inception. Of the many excellent knives I regularly use, this is by far my favorite and the current price makes it a hands down winner over the competition. The Sur La Table web site has outstanding information from Bob Kramer on the construction and care of these exceptional knives. I am exremely satisfied

    Why did I wait so long?
    Years ago, I bought a carbon steel utility knife by mistake. I wanted stainless and was appalled by the way the new knife darkened and got small rust spots. Of course, I knew nothing at the time about the care and feeding of carbon steel. I recently bought my first two Miyabi SG2 series stainless knives, and I own a Shun santoku knife. I thought they were the best knives I'd ever used, until I tried the Kramer 6"" carbon steel chef's knife. It sliced through the thick end of a very large carrot with very little pressure from me and enabled to slice vegetables very thinly because it is so sharp. The size of the blade is no problem because I keep all my knives on a magnet strip. I am in love with the feel and performance of this knife. I find caring for it properly to be no problem, and nothing less that it deserves. When I recover financially, I'm going back for the paring knife. These are incredible

    Excellent Knife
    My wife says this is the best cutting knife she has ever put in her hand (guess I should be careful knowing that)! This knife cuts cleanly, throughly, and easily. So much so that we are getting the 8" knife in the Bob Kramer collection for larger culinary cutting projects. and we will get more too, pairing and chiefs are the next we will get. Well worth the investment.
