    Zhen Chef's knife is a really fine high

    I build each of my three daughters a set of knives which included a Chef's knife and a pairing knife for Christmas. My youngest daughter is a professionally trained Chef who absolutely loves these knives. She is always receiving compliments and inquiries as to where she got the knife.

    I'll buy this product again

    I produce very attrative sets of knives. The blades are great but the tangs sometimes are so bent that I had to return them. NO way to put a very nice wooden handle and a piece of bent steel!

    This is a Great Knife

    This knife is now "The" knife in my kitchen. It came out of the box razor sharp. Has a great balance and held it's edge for over a month without any sharpening. Can cut a lime completely through by just lightly pushing down without using a slicing motion right out of the box. Only criticism would be the rivets that came with it broke, but not a problem for me because I used pins anyway. I don't know if I just got a good one, but I definitely recommend this knife.

    A rewarding project that you will use

    You get what you pay for in this blank. Very nice steel, good balance and performance for every day use. However, this knife is not a Shun, not even close. The grind is not top quality, and sharpness out of the box is just OK. However, after some time on the whetstone set the steel shows its potential. I got a razor sharp edge that seems to hold well. After adding a nice rosewood handle, the finished product looks great, and is very functional. I have only one gripe now about the blade: I like to grip the blade with my thumb and forefinger while cutting for more control but the top of the blade is ground to a sharp square that hurts my finger after a while. I guess I will round it off slightly one of these days.

    excellent chefs knife

    This is a very high quality knife, comes razor sharp, a great value kit at a little over half the price of this knife with handle. An easy hour project for a high quality customized tool that will last a life time, I'm going to buy the whole set and make a knifeblock to match.
