Okay, so I can't personally vouch for this because I got it for my mom as a birthday present a few years ago. I also got her a few other things, but this was probably the biggest hit. She loved the print, the size, the quality... and she is pretty picky/vocal about what she does and doesn't like. So that's a pretty big endorsement in my opinion. I love using Birchbox for gift giving because of the convenience and quality, and this was a definitely a win. AND, a couple of years later, I still haven't heard a complaint about this knife not holding up. Which is even more of an endorsement, because trust me, I'd hear about it.
