“ Received this knife in a 4 piece set with garnishing set. Have nothing but good things to say about the ergochef knives. Has stayed amazingly sharp since the day I bought it. ” --kvaughnaz
“ Victorinox is made by the same folks who make the Swiss Army knives. They have been in the knife business a long time, and make a good product. I own a Victorinox Chef's knife as well. Maybe the pro's need a heavier knife. As for me I am mostly a home cook, but also cook for church groups of up to 100+ people, and found it is more then enough knife for my needs. ” --silvercliff46
“ For the record, I do not own this knife yet, but have used it (and the rest of the Meridian Elite series), which belonged to my roommate, for the last three years. I liked this knife initially because of its classic look and full-tang construction. I like a good solid knife, and although some prefer lighter knives I like this because I don't feel as if I am going to break it...” --Paul Alfred
“ Would Madame Care For an Amuse Bouche d'Context? Called a "bec d'oiseau" in French, a bird's beak shaped blade makes tournes and paring some fruit easier. Unfortunately, the blade's inward curve makes it hard to get sharp once it's begun to dull with use.

“ This knife is so so nice. I got it some time around Christmas - doing personal shopping when I should have been doing Christmas shopping- and I use it frequently. I cook professionally, so you can imagine how much I use it....maybe an hour every day but Monday. I still haven't had to sharpen it or even use a honing steel on it and it's still the the sharpest steel blade I own. This knife is...” --slowjuicerdave
“ All household in Japan has a similar peeler like this, but cost much less. I bought my peeler at a asian grocery store in San Francisco and paid about $1. (made with plastic so it's much cheaper) I've never used the ceramic one so I don't know if there's any difference in performance but I'm pretty happy with mine. I use this for peeling almost any veggies, potatos, cucumbers, carrots, etc....” --
“ This combo set was rather affordable. Both pieces come with the unique, comfortable grip that you'd come to expect from OXO. While I have other peelers, and pairing knives, these are two items that I always seem to need more of around the house. In other words, these aren't necessarily my first choice tools when cooking. However, after having them for such a long time and under different...” --BenRias
