It's now sharper than most knives ever can be and is guaranteed to be a breath of fresh air in even the most experienced chef's hands. It comes from the company's short-lived "Gourmet Series, " their one attempt to compete with the likes of German makers Henckels and Wusthof. They were never successful in that attempt because the knives were VERY expensive and poorly marketed but the quality is here in abundance. Its blade is finely forged from the finest American stainless steel with blade/bolster and full tang all having been forged from a single billet of steel. Handle scales are solid black pakkawood hafted with stainless steel rivets--as rock solid and strong as they come, made to last several lifetimes, as you'd fully expect from any Case knife.

And at 13-1/8" long with an 8.25" blade, it's big enough to shine in even the most demanding professional kitchen. It's every chef's most trusted and useful tool, the knife that makes precision cuts when chopping, dicing, mincing or slicing--you name it. A GREAT knife that user and collector alike will instantly come to treasure as an heirloom.
