Very sharp, but very, very fragile
Slipped out of my hand first time used. Bird's peak end broke off when it landed on the counter a mere inch or two away. Very disappointing, especially when price is considered. Sur la Table needs to get their catalog corrected to make it possible to order the Zwilling bird's beak; it's always shown, but never found when its number is keyed in online to order. The Zwilling knife was still serving us wonderfully (more than 20 years) until my husband used it to pry a lid open. (Okay, that's definitely a 'man' thing!) But I'll be buying the Zwilling again when I can find it. This knife is lovely, but too fragile for regular use.

Sur La Table Store
Because I LOVE this sort of knife, and my husband broke my Wusthof one that I'd had for years and years. (They're not meant to release the vacuum seal on things in jars.) I tried multiple times to buy the Wusthof one again that's shown in Sur le Table catalogs, but the search never finds it. I'm hoping this will be at least as good as the Wusthof was.

I've always wanted to up my garnishing game so this short, curved, quality blade should be the right tool.
