We bought this Misen 8" Chef Knife several years ago and it is still the most-used knife in our kitchen. The weight and balance on this knife is amazing, and it's the sharpest knife I've ever seen out the box. It slices veggies like butter, and even does well with tougher vegetables like sweet potatoes and winter squash.
I really like how the blade maintains its edge over time. Although we've had ours for years, I've only had to sharpen it a few times. This is a world class kitchen knife without the world class price. Once you have one of these, you won't ever need another chefs knife -- ever!
