I have used this knife for two years. I bring it with me when I know I will be cooking at someone else's' home (unless I bought them one too). This knife will be the greatest tool in your Mother's kitchen, cutting through gigantic watermelons, tough turnips, gliding through tomatoes, and slicing meat like nothing you have ever experienced. This knife holds its edge, is beautifully balanced, and makes prep work a breeze. It may not seem like it, but this knife will be the best, most useful thing you ever purchase for Mom. You may want to grab one for yourself while you're at it.
An excellent knife needs a great cutting board to go with it. It’s stable and comes with two convenient, little, stainless steel bowls, making prep for meals with this cutting board easy as pie.
