Not too shabby!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This knife is quite sharp right out of the box. I'm more accustomed to a heavier 8" chefs knife, so the smaller and lighter knife will take some getting used to. The first thing I used my new 5.5" prep knife on was a sweet onion. I was unable to slice through the onion as I normally would. Instead, I had to saw through the onion and it was a bit unwieldy with the thin blade. Chopping and dicing the onion wasn't too enjoyable with this knife either. Next I I sliced and diced a fresh 3 × 6 tomato and it was simply wonderful. For my final test I sliced a lime into wedges and again it was a joy to use. So, this certainly will not be replacing my chef knife. It will, however, be a nice addition to my collection and I'll probably use it every day at work and often at home.

    Cuts finely!
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love it so far. Is light weight, cuts lettuce finely and tomatoes very thin. Pretty sharp. So far so good!

        Quality serrated knife shape and length
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After searching dozens of reviews for a serrated knife, I chose the Henckels because it was 5.5 inches instead of 5 and I liked the shape of the blade and handle. It has been working great so far - especially for cutting skin on chicken, salmon, tomatoes, and pretty much anything in my kitchen. When my chef's knife isn't clean or I am cutting something smaller, this has become my go to for cutting almost everything.

          Great multi-purpose knife
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My first knife purchase in many years. It's wonderful to have a new, very sharp knife. Handle is comfortable in my hand; blade size is perfect for most tasks. Highly recommend!

              Great for slicing tomatoes
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Serrated blade is nice and grippy for cutting through a tomato without pushing down too much. Nice to have a small compact serrated blade.
