    I use this knife to peel difficult vegetables like turnips and rutabagas - as long as you don't hold the vegetable in your hand while cutting. The knife has such a sharp point near the grip that it can give you a really good cut if you slip. It is great though for really hard, tough items as long as you're paying attention and don't get careless. Boy does it cut through things easily and you can tell the knife is very high quality.
    • Best Uses: Slicing and Dicing
    • Cons: Very sharp point on side
    • Pros: Very sharp stays sharp

    I'm a bit of a knife freak. Have well over 50 knives, from all the major players. All top line stuff. I like to hand sharpen each knife myself (whetstones of course) so I know each of my knives personally and intimately. This is the sharpest knife I have ever purchased... right out of the package. Probably could shave with it. Used it last night to mince some garlic and was amazed by the blade performance. The only downside I can think of is it will require a skilled hand to resharpen due to the variable geometry.

    A good knife for paring & small knife uses. You could take a full carrot down with it, but you wouldn't want to. Very good for scallions or smaller peppers & such.
    • Best Uses: Paring small knife use
    • Pros: Sharp, Vetrsitile
