I loved the knife and bought one. When I used it for the first time, I was very impressed by the performance. It really did cut very thin slices without any pressure and boy, it was so easy and the best cutting experience.
But within 15 days, that sharpness was gone, and it became just like other thousand knives.
I was so happy, but my happiness lasted only for about 15 days. Since I bought the knife when I was vacationing in California, and I live in New York City, so I could not just go and return the knife. I tried to find out any number or website address, but I could not find it so I am stuck with the knife. It did not cost me that much so I could just through it in the recycle bin. But my problem is tthe disappointment. I really loved the knife.
So if you buy this knife, trust me, it is not a good product beyond 15 days. I also bought one for my sister, and she had the same problem, so you decide.
I would not give any stars as I believe it is not worth even one star, but one star is the one I could give.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
