KRAMER by ZWILLING Meiji 5-inch Utility Knife is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Something in the way it moves There is something fluid about this knife. The proportions of the handle to the blade. It is not a shape or length I normally like, but this maneuvers more like a long paring knife. I've even had folks use it as a table knife for steaks and chops. It is knife that warrants love. The Meiji line is as tough as it is beautiful. Made of 101 layers of steel, and ice hardened in the process, this tough knife will work hundreds of menus before it needs to be sharpened. The patterned blade signals its Damascus-style layering. The bright stainless is eye catching. The handle is a little longer than traditional handles. Great for larger hands or folks who don't use a pinch grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to knife is the Meiji 8" chef knife, so I thought this would be the perfect addition to my collection. It is now my daughters favorite go to knife. The blade ss forged from a core of FC61 steel and surrounded by 100 layers of nickel and stainless producing a beautiful Damascus pattern. The D-shaped Japanese-style handle, made from charcoal pakkawood, provides a secure grip and excellent balance. This blade is razor sharp and will do any job in the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This utility knife is such a pleasure to use. The longer, bigger handle gives the knife stability while the narrow blade with it's acute edge angle cuts with little effort. With 100 layers of ladder Damascus surrounding a FC 61 core this knife is built to last. The exaggerated D shape of the handle is designed to feel comfortable in both the left and the right hand. These are well balanced yet light weight knives that cut with precision and ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bob Kramer knives are the ultimate knives on the market! These are the best of the best - with unmatched quality and beauty, together in one tool! The ladder Damascus pattern is a super-sharp yet thin blade made with the Friodur process for lasting sharpness and durability along with being corrosion free and no chipping. The pakkawood handle feels comfortable and easy to control and grip. The utility knife is a must-have for every kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size In Between Jobs This is a great knife for all those "in between" tasks. There's so many times when I'm needing to cut a smaller vegetable, piece of fruit or meat that my chef knife is simply too big. That's the perfect time to grab this utility knife. The handle fits perfectly in my hand and the shorter, extremely sharp blade is a great. It's made from an extemely durable steel, FC61, so I don't have to worry about chipping the blade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This size is perfect for preparing smaller foods and food that fits in your hand easily. I use it for peeling apples in one long peel for desserts, as well as many other small food prep needs. I love the pakkawood handle which looks beautiful and is resistant to moisture. The shape of the handle fits perfectling in the palm of your hand and was designed for right-handers and left-handers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from zwilling employee The Meiji line of Bob Kramer knives is an asian inspired look on a western knife. The edge angle and the steel are in keeping with a typical western style Kramer production knife. The detailed and asian inspired handle with angles and smoothed corners gives the feel of a traditional eastern D shaped handle. An unexpected and stunning look to this collection.
