Feels very different than a standard chef knife
This 8 inch knife feels a lot different than a typical chef knife due to its geometry. It has some features that make it an ideal entry-level knife, but some drawbacks as well.
If you are looking for a low-cost entry level knife that you plan to use occasionally, this might be a good fit. Otherwise, I recommend looking at the Winco Acero 8" chef knife instead.
+very comfortable handle, a little strange to get used to at first
+the tip of the knife is thinner than the rest of the blade, making it perfect for detailed work.
+wide blade makes it easier to control.
-when rocking the knife, there is a lot of resistance from the contact point with the board due to the geometry of the blade
-balance is not great, front heavy.
-not a full tang knife.
Fit and Finnish: 4/5
+mirror finish, no scratches.
+handle perfect out of box, no cracks, scratches, or significant imperfections.
-profile on the blade is not well-done. some areas are wider, some narrower, and inconsistent on each side. I recommend reprofiling this knife before using. This is
-The edge on the top of the knife is not smoothed. Not a significant issue though since due to the wider blade it is not likely to scrape up against your fingers.
+advertised as a stamped steel blade, but it does not look like it.
+good quality carbon steel
+Very low price, though for only 3 dollars more you could get the Winco Acero 8" chef knife which in my opinion will be a better choice for most folks.
High carbon steel knives should not go in the dishwasher. Always hand-wash, and dry with a towel after using.
