KRAMER by ZWILLING Meiji 6-inch Chef's Knife is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chopper This 6-inch chef's knife, with the wider blade, is reminiscent of a Japanese butchery knife. It is fluid and responsive. I like it for boning fish with a tougher skin and bigger bones. Great for chopping vegs and cubing meat. The beefier handle feels good in my hand. The Meiji line is as tough as it is beautiful. Made of 101 layers of steel, and ice hardened in the process, this knife will work hundreds of menus before it needs to be sharpened. The patterned blade is signals the 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 Beauty and Braun 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 is reminiscent of Damascus layering. The bright stainless is eye catching. I smile whenever I use one. The handle is a little longer than traditional handles. Great for larger hands or folks who don't use a pinch grip. The 8-inch chef's knife isn't 'over-arc-ed'; has just enough curve for my liking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This beautiful knife designed by Master Blade Smith Bob Kramer is a work of art. 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 secure in both the left and the right hand. These are well balanced yet light weight knives that cut with precision and ease. This knife feels so light for it's size. The thicker handle helps make this knife feel very secure in the hand and during use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not a traditional Kramer. This is a very edgy Kramer knife. The shape of the blades seems true to style but the handle is so unique. Now that he has ventured into Asian Cutlery, I am excited to see it showing up in his production lines. This has the feeling of his custom asian knives he now makes but (without the incredibly creative blades) but at a price more can afford.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sometimes you just want a smaller chef knife and when you do, this one is perfect. I love the Meiji line for many reasons, but the pakkawood handle shape has to be one of the top reasons. I love how it fits in my hand and does not create fatigue when working in the kitchen for extended periods of time. Bob Kramer designed the handle to be comfortable for right-handers as well as left-handers. The blade is super sharp and durable, so you will have this one for years to come.
