Small and simple knives are the best, at least I think like that. At the same time, they are more than just an affordable and they can be used in different applications. However, some models on the market right now are not a great choice. I know, because I tried most of them. On the other side, the Zyliss 5.5-Inch Kitchen Knife is completely different and it brings all the things a great knife should have and a few things more. I am very satisfied with it, and I plan to use it for a long time.
