    Everyday Use and still my favorite - This is my go to knife when I reach in my bag when I get to work in the morning. I've had this for nearly 5 years, and It's been through more carrots, celery, and onions than Farmer John himself. I've droped it countless times, butchered whole chickens, cleaned strip loins, skinned salmon filets, you name it, i've used this knife for it. It truely is a workhorse. It takes to a steel and hones right up. And when it comes time to use a whetstone, the edge comes back after a quick working over. I own both Shun and Wustoff. While my shun knives are babied, they still show chips and knicks in the blade. While this knife is going on half a decade, and is beaten on daily, it still has a smooth razor sharp edge. Great knife and great value.
