This is the perfect little black dress of knives. It is a great all around knife, the one you pick up so you don't have to wash three knives. It has a very sharp, thin blade that is long enough but not too long for things like peeling or paring fruit. The "D" shap handle is great and it fits both my husband's hands and my hands - making it amazingly versitile. The knife is also beautiful making it a great gift. The moire pattern on the blade is stunning as is the beautiful handle.
