My favorite knife
This is probably my most-used knife, maybe except for a serrate bread knife. It's extremely sharp, beautiful to look at, the handle is comfortable, and its the right size for prepping vegetables, trimming meat, and works for sandwiches. I have the 8" french knife in this series which I love also, just don't have the need for it as often as this prep knife.

I currently tend to use a 6" chef knife for a lot of prep work, but I think this size will be even better, and I like the Bob Kramer Carbon knife line a lot.

I have several other Bob Kramer carbon knives and they are great. I couldn't believe how much better they cut than other knives. I am slowly replacing other knives.
Virginia E on Nov 11, 2014
As a prep cook I wanted a good set of knifes to aid me at my job. I wanted to test the steel in a professional kitchen. This straight carbon steel knife is fantastic extra sharp the edge last a long time and I rarely had to hone the knife. However, after one week of use, the patina came in and it started to rust. Granted I knew the consequences of straight carbon and it comes with Camilla oil to maintain it, but I work all week and I don't have time to maintain it, unfortunately I returned it.
