Mundial Cutlery, Part 2

An earlier post, made reference to a magazine review for a 10" chef's knife for under $20. I finally ordered my own and it arrived a few weeks ago and I am quite happy with the product.

I have been using an 8" Henckels for the last few years. So this 10" almost felt like a murder weapon. But after a few uses I found it to be comfortable, balanced, and I felt in control of the knife.

I ordered the knife from Mad Cow Cutlery and I think I found them in a random Google search. Their price was an incredible $17 and the service was outstanding. USPS lost the first knife and Mad Cow quickly sent another one for free which arrived a few days later.

This will be my second Mundial knife purchase. Earlier this year I picked up a bread knife for an amazing $11.

Here's a video to look at on proper knife technique:
