Mercer Cutlery Genesis 8-Inch Chef's Knife

0% Positive Reviews
Rated #60 in Chef's Knives

Posted

Pros: Cuts well, seems to hold an edge fine. Looks professional, has a thick grip.

Cons: Very heavy knife, handle is a little bulky.

This knife was issued to me as part of my starter pack at the California Culinary Academy. I have only been using it for a few weeks, but am already looking for a different knife.

 

This one cuts just fine, and I do like how thick the grip is, but I don't like how heavy it is. I feel like I'm using an axe the way it's profile takes up space.

 

Just my opinion. Otherwise, I really like the quality and low price of Mercer's products.
