i am a professional cook and i cut bread hundreds of times a day, 8-12 hours a day, 5-7 days a week. i cut crusty breads, soft breads, i cut very thin crostini, i cut chunks of focaccia, i cut them hot or cold, often very fast. this knife has a decent heft but isnt so heavy that i get fatigue even after hour 9 working at a fast pace. the blade is thick enough not to be too flexible, and with care i have learned to avoid the unintentionally slanted cuts that a knife with a thicker spine can sometimes produce. for the amount of bread i cut, i prefer this heavier duty style, as i know i wont bend or dent it, & i sometimes also use it for rough work like trimming the tough skin off a huge 'leg' of prosciutto, or as a kind of tough wedge for roughly cutting apart a huge wheel of cheese or whole melon, which i do by pushing it through more than sawing. the knife came quite sharp and can bite into all crusts well, often requiring less than one stroke to cleanly produce delicate, non-torn up...
If your clicking around on amazon trying to find professional knives but aren't rich, ALWAYS GO MERCER! I'm a cook and have used knives from wal-mart status... to knives that your afraid to use because the price was so high. Then here comes mercer. They make amazing knives that are so sharp and quality.. I mean you can use and abuse these things and they will still slice through anything you put in front of them. Also, if your planning on useing knives for hours a week, mercer puts alot of research into designing very comfortable knifes with amazing balance. This knife right here (I own it b.t.w.) feels like it should cost about 60 dollars... but was a 1/4 of that. You can take this onto a professional kitchen and not get laughed at, anyone who knows their stuff knows mercer is the best value for a seiously professional knife
this thing will last you 10 years easy if you take care of it! dont waste you money thinking this is cheap, therefore not good. This is better than an...
I could write a page or more just about how excellent Mercer knives are (I own two, a Mercer Millenia 10" chef, this paring knife, along with a Shun chef knife, a Wurstof chef and paring and slicer), I could write another page on how excellent most stamped blades are over forged blades, due to the low cost and thinness and 17 degree angle of bevel and how that allows them to cut so amazingly (check out the Victorinox Classic line as well). I will just put it this way, if you are all about ego and looks, and have a hundred or more to blow on a paring knife...by all means buy a Global, Shun or Wurstoff. However, if you want a paring knife that is razor (and I literally mean razor, it will shave your hair off your arm) sharp with a grippy (two different plastics) comfortable handle that allows you to use it for hours at a time...buy this knife. This is the knife I grab for when doing any quick basic cutting in the kitchen, opening plastic around bottle tops, cutting packaging on...
