Someone gifted me a chef’s knife, and it seems like a good value (in looking for info on it, you get mostly Amazon links revealing the price–about $40):
The odd thing is it won’t adhere solidly to my magnetic knife bar. Maybe something to do with the “Damascus” layering and patterning? It’s not a flat-stamped knife like the Victorinox Fibrox, but it also lacks the heft I’d expect from a forged knife. Whatever–it’s the magnet thing I find puzzling.
