I got this knife a little while back and this is the only knife I use now. Whether I am chopping something small or large this is my go to knife. It stays sharp and when I sharpen it it stays sharp for a while. I am very clumsy in thr kitchen and have not cut myself with this knife. It has a great grip to it and does not slip out of your hand. The handle is very comfortable. It has a great design to it but it is the bes knife I have ever bought. I no longer use any knife but this, I even cut our Thanksgiving turkey with it. There is nothing this knife can not do. Comfort The handle to his knife is very comfortable. It has a good grip and goes back and forth with little effort. Performance Best knife I have ever purchased. Wonderful quality at a decent price. Durability Very durable, have had mine for awhile and it has not chipped, broke anything. The handle is still in great shape and as sturdy as the day I got it. Design Very colorful, bright and fun. Has a color appeal to it but actually does what it is suppose to, cut.
