From Seth's Corner - It is the Norpro - Kleve 8 Inch Chef's Knife --- And yep we sharpen it before we send it!!! This is a great knife and if any one has ever seen how we use the Norpro EZ Grip Meat Hammer with a knife to cut the ends off squash and then slice the squash in half.. well.. don't be using your $95.00 knife for this... This knife will become your go to ... pound, beat and cut knife... AND YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR OTHER KNIVES LOOKING GOOD IN THEIR HOLDER.. This knife as the potential of becoming your favorite knife... even if you did not have to loose your left arm and right leg to buy it!!! A great knife for the price.... again use this knife with the EZ Grip Meat Hammer... and check out the Packaged Specials to see how Seth priced these two items together for a great price.
