Ideal companion to a Chef's knife. A very useful all-around utility/slicer knife. This makes a great addition to a growing and versatile knife collection. A knife like this one quickly becomes a favourite "go-to" knife for those many everyday tasks where a paring knife is too small and a chef's knife is overkill. Perfect for slicing meats and cutting fruits and vegetables. Same comfortable and nearly indestructible grip and razor-sharp hardened stainless steel edge as the rest of the classic line. Forged German steel quality for a lifetime of use.
