This is a great knife. At 23cm it is nicely long, but comfortable. The blade is stiff (really good for robust bread like the rye loaves I bake) and the edge is excellent. The finish on the handle is all I could want, and the only reason it gets four stars is that that is proper for a top quality knife that is going to be used and appreciated, and not displayed on a rack!
I would recommend this product to a friend.
