I have used many knives throughout the years; however, this 10" carving knife has become my favorite knife for the job since the first time I used it to carve a ham. The serrated blade made short work of the job. I keep the blade protected with a blade shield when not in use in the knife drawer. I am looking forward to carving a beef roast at our next family get together. You will love the balance and feel of the knife the first time you use it!
