Sizes

There are two different knives which also means two different sizes. The knife measures 155 mm in total. 120 mm of this length, is the handle length whilst the cutting edge is 25 mm long.

Feel

The handles have an ergonomic design. This is what makes them comfortable to hold and also helps to avoid hand fatigue.

Price

This is a set of two knives, and you may find that it is cheaper to get this than to buy the individual knives. This will depend on the retailer. If it is being shipped to you then you may find that the cost will be higher than walking into a local store and buying them.
