OXO Good Grips Professional 6-Inch Utility Knife

This knife is a little larger than a paring knife and smaller than a butcher knife which probably isn't correct knife terminology but it is how I see it.  The handle is a comfortable fit for a large man's hand.  I tested it by cutting and then dicing a couple of apples.  It cut easily and the large handle made it feel very secure in my hand.  It fills in a gap in my knife block and I like it.  

One negative and not on the knife, the packaging is cumbersome and it is very difficult to get into it.   Typical clam shell, military grade plastic which defies your average pocket knife and necessitates either a chain saw or a specialty tool to open.   Since I don't keep a chain saw in the kitchen I used my Zibra ZPCOPEN-OR Open It Universal Package Opener.  Frankly when I got it as a gift I thought it was dumb but since then I have realized what a terrific tool it is.  If fact, I think I will review it next.

From the vendor: 
A multi-purpose knife for slicing and cutting sandwiches, vegetables and more
Soft, comfortable handle ensures a safe grip
Sharp, no-stain blades are hardened to make them strong and durable
Full-tang blades keep knives properly balanced
Hand wash with warm, soapy water and promptly dry.

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
