Make no mistake, this is a large knife - but unlike many large knives, this one is ground flawlessly and is a great slicer. It is comfortable in the hand and the fit and finish is excellent. My only suggestions would be to use phosphor-bronze washers instead of bearings, and to extend the back spacer a little more to fully cover the blade. (Personal opinion only. YMMV) Otherwise, I’m very impressed with the Ponomor Folder and highly recommend it.
