Knife info and guarantee
A knife is a tool that should always be used for the purpose for which it was made. This is the only way to guarantee that you will enjoy it. Not all steel is suitable for everything.
A hunter should use a knife that is not quite as hard, but flexible.
A cook, on the other hand, should use steel that is very hard and sharp. Only with the cleaver he should go for something flexible.
