"A good budget knife with a sturdy handle" star star star star star_border The lakeland hammered steel chef's knife has a strong sturdy handle, which allows the user confidence in precision slicing and chopping. The hammered detail on the blade adds interest to the knife which is not seen on other knives. The blade itself is quite sharp and easily cuts through foods such as cooked chicken and fruits. When using the knife,the blade is quite strong and does not bend. The knife is easy to clean.
