Perfect Chef's Knife
This is an excellent knife!

The blade, bolster, and tang are all 1 solid piece of steel (instead of 2 separate pieces flanking the blade to form the bolster, which can leave tiny crevices for bacteria to proliferate).

The steel is a low-carbon X50CrMoV15, which means that it's a little more malleable than high-carbon/Damascus steel.
At first I thought I would want a really stiff, high-carbon blade for a chef's knife, but I found that those knife edges would catch on the cutting board when pivoting on the curve while mincing herbs & vegetables, and it felt like it would be easy to chip the blade if I wasn't careful. Not so with this knife. In addition, the blade is more readily honed than my Damascus steel Shun knife's, so keeping it razor sharp is wonderfully easy.

The balance of weight between the blade and the handle is right where the index finger holds the handle, which makes cutting large fruits such as watermelon much easier than it would be with a knife with more weight in the blade than in the handle.

I've had this knife for about 3 months now, and I use it almost every day, honing it whenever the edge doesn't ring when I run my finger across (never along!) the blade, which is about every 4-5 uses.

It is just as sharp if not sharper than the day I bought it, requires minimal maintenance to keep it in top form, and, in my opinion, is better engineered and more practical for every-day use than the other knives I tried before settling on this one:
- Shun Classic
- Miyabi Artisan
- Wusthof Epicurean
- Bob Kramer Stainless Damascus

This is an excellent knife!
