Got my chopping knife that perfectly matches with my other new knife and stainless steel appliances. Love the design, the handle and blade are just one piece. Nice integrated black adornment. Judging by the way it is packed, it seems the company takes much pride in the quality and appearance of its products. It is certainly a great addition to my kitchen. This product makes me look back in time when I used to watch my grandmother cook (she always had an "hachuela" in her kitchen to cut whole chickens and other foods).
