This knife is well worth the cost. I was skeptical at first as the price seemed abit stiff believing a knife of lesser cost could be just as effective. I was wrong. I tested this knife on both grilled fillet mignons and a large rump roast to compare cutting ease and was stunned at how thin I could slice the meat with little or no effort. The feel was ample and while my some of my other german knives presented a slightly "more appealing style of handle," they couldn't compare to ease of cut and maintainment of sharpness from the various types of meat. A fine addition to any cutlery desired in a modern kitchen.
