Feels solid - looks great - works well I especially like the fact that the cardboard sheath it came in has instructions on the correct use of this tool. I've followed the recommendations and have a good sharp knife every time I cook.

I prefer to keep my counter tops uncluttered, so I like the in drawer knife block. It holds twice as many knives as my old one, so I have more of my knives in one place at my fingertips. Because it takes up quite a bit of room in the drawer I had to rearrange things, but I still managed to fit everything in that I need.
