    "Since my brother broke my Zwilling chef knife last Thanksgiving, I was forced to buy a new one. Some friends suggested I get a Japanese knife set but I decided to just go for an upgrade and purchase the Pro "S" Series, and it's been my best decision to date ☺️😎 Maybe a little too much, but I'm happy with the weight and maneuverability of the blade.

    "I got this knife in addition to my pre-existing set. I spend most of my time in the kitchen so this was a worthy investment. How can you go wrong with a set of Japanese knives when it's the same country who made those super sharp samurai blades?????? LOL"

    "This was the first branded knife we bought as a couple since we lived together. 5 years together and this knife is still in our kitchen doing the job it's meant to do. I was amazed when I was first slicing potatoes, those dimples matter ya'll!"

    "I've been looking for the best kitchen knife like I'm looking for "The One" and boy am I glad that the search is over. Most knives just don't cut it (pun intended), at least not like this. It flies through vegetables, and parts through meat just how I want it."

    "Since this is the kind of knife that doesn’t really get sharpened at home, It’s quite on the expensive side but definitely worth it. I’ve gone through a lot of knife brands thinking that it all did the same job but NOOOOOOOO… Japanese knives are DIFFERENT! Gone are the days of mushy, crushed bread and fruit "
