Several months ago when we were talking about meat grinders I ran across a butcher supply place that had a really nice knife that I just wished for and happen to email to my husband. Never thought I would get it, but I absolutely love it. I have never had a really nice knife before, but this one is fantastic. It is razor sharp, well balanced, really nice. It is a Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro "S" 7". It is great at slicing meat and veggies. If any of you are looking for a good knife to use to slice up meat this one is great.
