Pros: Sharp and sturdy
Cons: None really
This is one of those items that really does not have many defects or disadvantages. Its sleek sharp design is great for your slicing/carving duties. It looks great and is therefore good for more than just kitchen carving...think tableside carving, catering serving, etc. Its handle is plastic, but not slippery in my experience. Of course with liquid on the handle, it could become slippery, but with slicing duties, it is less likely. Great product.
