    WOW - What a Knife!

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This thing is serious - phenomenal for slicing any cut of meat we send its way. Not a carving knife, but that wasn't the reason we purchased it. The blade is BEAUTIFUL, the pattern, the finish, and the steel. Such a pleasure to use, and what a statement piece. With cooking being a passion, this is such a worthwhile investment.

    Amazing Knife

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a well thought out design and so comfortable to hold. I'm left handed and I've never found a knife that felt so good in my hand.

    This slicer is absolutely fantastic! It’s made out of a very tough durable FC61 steel. It’s super sharp and keeps the edge forever. It slices with clean smooth cuts. Perfectly balanced and doesn't feel huge in my hands.

    If you want a special knife for those special carving occasions like your holiday roasts definitely consider investing in this beautiful knife. Designed by Bob Kramer the master knife smith you're hard pressed to find a nicer more beautiful knife. The core is made from FC61 steel which is one of the hardest steels available and then wrapped in an additional one hundred layers of stainless and nickel to create the unique damascus pattern. You will achieve the most effortless thin slices of roast with this knife not to mention using it for fajita meat slicing, cutting ribs or even special occasion cakes.

    The Meiji line of Bob Kramer knives is an asian inspired look on a western knife. The edge angle and the steel are in keeping with a typical western style Kramer production knife. The detailed and asian inspired handle with angles and smoothed corners gives the feel of a traditional eastern D shaped handle. An unexpected and stunning look to this collection.
