The wife was complaining about our dull kitchen knives, so, I asked a knife collector friend about what he'd recommend. He said "Get her a few Marttiini knives of Finland." Super sharp. Contoured rubber grips prevent slips and their shape prevents up-side-down landing, when setting the knife on the counter, so it won't land blade up like our previous brand did.
Bought this for my husband who is always being asked to carve. Works very well.
