I bought this knife for my husband who likes to work in the kitchen and help with dinner cutting up veggies, etc. I was very impressed by how well it was packaged and what a nice presentation it made when I gave it to him. He really liked it. The knife is very sharp, hubby actually nicked himself taking it out of the box, he didn't expect it to be that sharp, we usually have to sharpen knives when we first get them. This is a very well made high-quality knife and I am glad I got it for him.
