Pros: Design, Construction, Material Quality, Sharpness, Overall Quality
Cons: None
This has got to be the sharpest kitchen knife I've ever bought. The handle is comfortable and makes using the knife a pleasure. For $25 you can't beat it. Will be looking at some of their other kitchen knives in the future. I shouldn't be surprised since I own quite a few of their folding knives, and have always been completely satisfied. Thanks again Spyderco, for another great product and thanks to Knife Center for their as usual great service.

Love these blades
I've been a long time spyderco fan but never had anything from the kitchen line. I got both the 4 and 6 inch for my mother for her birthday. She loves them. They came razor sharp and have great ergonomics. These are next on my list of spydies.

Perfect kitchen knife
My EDC is a Spyderco Delica 4 combo blade and I recently joked that I use it to slice tomatoes and apples more than anything else and that I should get one to keep in the kitchen because it produced thinner, nicer slices than my other knives. My boyfriend pointed out the Spyderco kitchen knives and I couldn't wait to try them. With the longer blade on this knife it was even easier to use and I got the same great precision cuts. As soon as I unpacked my order I sliced an apple into thin crisp slices and the knife just glided through the task effortlessly- it felt great in my hand and was incredibly sharp right out of the box. This is a great knife and I highly recommend it.
