Have been using this knife for about one year now and feel that this knife was definitely worth purchasing. I have used it for cutting veggies (what it was originally purchased for) and have found it also lends itself extremely well for numerous meats and even bread. It is still as razor sharp as the day it was purchased, with no chips or damage to the knife blade at all. This knife has a really solid weight and feel. It is also an absolutely stunning knife to look at, with really beautiful craftsmanship.
While I have not had an issue, this knife handle is designed for a right-hand. I am left-handed, but can still use this knife with no issues or discomfort, but I imagine the grip would feel even more sturdy for a right-handed wielder.
I wash and dry by hand, as recommended on the package- although once or twice it was accidentally placed in the dishwasher and came out with no apparent damage.
After a year of regular (almost daily) use, I feel that the quality, design, and durability of this knife are excellent, and have recommended it to friends and family.
