Yes, another line of knives. And this one really impressed me. I fell in love, in particular, with the Nakiri, a traditional Japanese vegetable cleaver.
The straight edge is designed to slice, dice and julienne using a firm thrust forward, rather than a rocking motion. It is great for fruits and vegetables, and can also be used to thinly slice vegetables for sushi preparation or fancy-pants salads and garnishes. I have been using the Nakiri for everything but bread and tomatoes because I'm drawn to its weight and it feels great to use. Sure, it has a good sharp blade, which I expected since it is fully-forged premium German steel. A lot of knives can claim that distinction, but get the weight wrong. It's a well balanced knife that feels great in the hand.
I can't yet report on it's long-term durability, but I can say that the blade honed up very nicely after an afternoon of aggressive veggie chopping.
The only drawback is the LX Series's handles, which are a bit on the small side. I have pretty big hands, so after a lot of chopping, my hand cramps up a bit. Like sleeping on a twin bed in an old house, if only there was a squidge more room, the experience would be perfect. For smaller hands, it's a dream knife, especially at the price.
