These knives are seriously the best cheap but SHARP knives! Great for filet meats, chopping and slicing onions and tomatoes so easily. My husband originally bought a pair for fishing, and gave me the extra knife for the kitchen. Once I started on the onion, I was sold! I hate cutting tomatoes too, as sometimes the knife squeezes down and the seeds spill out. not fun for burgers or salads. I will always buy at least 2 packs of these knives. they are great to travel with and very sharp. I love how they come with a guard as well.
