    Henk from Almere
  • "You never want to use any other knife"
    Elsa from Amsterdam
  • "It is an excellent knife. He hangs nicely between my global knives. When the cutting becomes difficult, I always use the nippon. Why? It is more versatile. Cutting goes with great easiness and the weight is much better. "
    Ralf from Stein
  • "Cuts like a piece of cake. Could definitely discard two Sabatiers. It is worth every cent of the investment. "
    Roger from Antwerp
  • "The knife glides through the different textures of a cooled frittata. It cuts a rather limp onion in gossamer rings. Without any pressure it makes a diamond pattern in the skin of a fish. It would be suitable as a tool of a sculptor, for sculptures of ice, butter or old cucumber, it does not matter. I'm a fan. "
    Marijke from Amsterdam
