The handle is solid and smooth, and the blade goes through tuna like a hot knife through butter.
The extra steep angle on the edge makes the knife sharper, but also more delicate, so it really needs to be used for slicing softer foods such as steaks, tomatoes, fruits and veggies, etc.
The knife is very sharp, takes a edge well and is the right size for a lot of uses
It is worth every pretty penny. Note: Be very careful with this knife, the tip and blade are VERY sharp.
This knife cuts beautifully and cleanly with little effort!
