about the petite carver only

Pros:good for petite hands

Cons:none so far

My roommate used to sell Cutco so we had a whole set. I loved the petite carver so much that he let me have it for my birthday. Although other reviewers have said it's only good for smaller tasks, I have been using mine every day for every task. The key is that this is a very slim knife with very sharp edges. I have petite hands and every other high quality knife that I have tried has in recent years modified their handles and the area surrounding the handles to be very large. While I'm sure this would be fine for people with medium to large hands, it makes it very hard for me to get any kind of leverage since my palm can't close comfortably over the handles. Thus, I end up using this knife to dice vegetables, carve meat, slice bread, etc, and it does all jobs beautifully. I can prepare a whole meal and only have to wash this one knife. The length of this knife is also easy to wield, I think it's between five and six inches. If you are tired of trying to maneuver a big knife as long as your forearm, which can be quite tiring, I strongly urge you get this knife. For these same reasons, it is a good knife for encouraging teenagers to learn to cook, since it is easy to handle and not intimidating. After over a year of use every single day, it shows no sign of wear or dulling. When I get my own place, you can be sure I'm going to get a whole set, expensive though they are. By the way, the petite carver is less than $40, which makes it much more reasonably priced than an equivalent knife from those other big name brands you see at Williams-Sonoma.
