Knife that is the best in the world (5/5)

Cutting knives from Cutco have been in my possession for many The prices of the knives range from $100 to $1000. A $100 knife recently broke off the tip of the paring knife my husband used as his screwdriver when he decided to use it as a paring knife. As such, I have been looking for a replacement screwdriver at a reduced price in case he is having difficulty finding it. During my search for knives on Amazon, I came across this little beauty and gave it a try, and my life has been changed forever. Honestly, this is a fantastic device. Comes in assorted colors and under $10 with a smooth cut and an extremely sharp blade that cuts with little effort. It is my passion to cook and I prepare a home cooking meal at least once or twice a week. I keep knives in my house as a staple. As soon as I purchased the first one, I decided to order two more to have on hand because it is so fantastic. I say goodbye to Cutco and hello to My knives are only going to be purchased from this brand from now on.

There's no rule that says you can't get something for nothing, is there? A paring knife I had for decades was somehow lost (5/5)

I had a hard time finding a replacement that was the right size but also something I could use. The Mercer knife that I found on Amazon caught my eye. A very favorable review was given to this product, which cost less than $3. In fact, the whole thing happened by a stroke of luck. This product is made from the highest quality materials It is made of high-quality cutlery steel and is razor sharp when delivered. I like how well it holds the edge. It is extremely difficult to define value in terms of quality versus cost. Mercer knives have the potential to be a favorite of mine if all of them are as cheap as this little paring knife that was.

This is a totally excellent quality knife for the price (3/5)

I did actually order a better Mercer paring knife with higher grade steel and a santoprene handle however, I couldn't resist buying this little cheapie first. As an added bonus, I have a paring knife I keep in my kitchen to handle whatever odd job it happens to come across (last night I used it to grate Manchego cheese for my snack of toasted sourdough, olives, It has plenty of sharpness out of the box, but man it doesn't inspire any confidence with a grip it doesn't feel sturdy. If you hold it in your hand, you'd be discouraged by the feeling that you might get cut (which you should have known anyway). It is a bit strange, but it wasn't bad for the price I paid, and I bought it just for fun. place in my knife block, but I'll see how often I pull it out over time. It seems to me that it doesn't feel right in my hand. I feel like I'm unable to get a reliable The thinness of the flat handle portion is what makes the handle so improbable. A strong grasp is not possible due to insufficient holding power. While a blade will be easier to sharpen, it will go dull faster as well. It's what you can expect from steel of this grade. Here is one of those corny little cult classics that might find its way into the trash, or it might just become a favorite.

The knife is of good quality, but the shipping from Amazon is terrible! It is described as a "Hollow Ground" knife on the package (4/5)

The blade is quite nice. There is no such thing. For improved grip, it would be nice if the handle had a pebble finish. This blade is made from stainless steel, which is good quality. It is mainly for this reason I have Nearly every pairing knife made is crafted from X30Cr13 steel, which is far tougher than most other steels. The prices of those under $3 in particular need to be considered. As this is intended to be an "Add-On", 00 is the amount You can find it in the "On" I had a terrible experience with shipping! Basically, Amazon shipped their packages in simple mailing envelopes. According to the address, deliveries are to be made We were able to see through the main entrance of the building. In the middle of a downpour, the driver left the shipping envelope on the porch. I am glad the knife cannot be damaged by water. Shame on Amazon for hiring people who aren't committed to their jobs or to shipping our packages.

Here is what has been done thus I love it! In the past, I've tried several paring knives that proved to be a colossal failure when it came Due to my small hands, most of the items either had an overly large handle or had a dull blade (5/5)

As a result, the task is awkward, uncomfortable, and dangerous. A nice little knife for digging around potatoes. It is extremely sharp and small enough to make quick maneuvers around your spuds. I haven't used it long enough to know if it sharpens very well, but I will just buy another one at this price!.

The color quickly dulls (1/5)

After I first received this knife, it had a very sharp edge, but I can no longer use it like that. The knives I wash by hand are very carefully inspected, so I was surprised how quickly they.

I am a little However, the knife is not particularly sharp due to its thick blade (3/5)

As I peeled an apple, I used half my Victorinox Fibrox paring knife (not new) and half this new Mercer knife. Handling was easier with the Fibrox 1) The Mercer paring knife blade is just a bit thicker, and it gives me the same results. However, the handle is in good condition. The Fibrox feels much like this. also have a Mercer (Millennia 9" offset serrated knife) which I like. This paring knife isn't what I was hoping it would be, but I still don't like it as much as I expected. I cannot return the item because the packaging was cut up to get to the knife, so I cannot return it.

A black Friday sale price is hard to beat for this pairing knife (4/5)

Even at the normal Amazon price, this knife is still a good deal. I have had no problems with its size and shape and it has handled all the tasks in my kitchen just fine. *There are, however, a couple of things to keep in mind. This knife appears to be made of Japanese steel, but when you check it out, it's marked as X30CR13, which is the European name for 420J2, a very low carbon steel that's better known for its stain resistance than its My knife had a very poor grind, which I was able to fix in a short amount of time, but if you aren't a knife expert, you would likely have a difficult time. In spite of the steel's low quality, I will point out that the edge retention is better than the Victorinox small pairing knife that replaced it, after a short strop adjustment, the edge returned to paper-slicing sharpness.
