This knife is sharp! Thin, light and santoku like profile. Love it! So much better than the more expensive Henckels or Wustoff knives. This knife has good value to performance. Perfect for the home!
In addition to having your knife performance tuned before it ships, you will received a coupon for complimentary re-sharpening of your knife (a $12-$50 value). That is the District Cutlery difference.
