To anyone on the fence about this knife deal here is what you need to know:

TLDR; this is the best knife you can buy without getting something custom and easily costing 5x-10x more. You can get something almost as good for half the price.

The Knife:
Bob Kramer is the greatest custom knifemaker in our generation. He worked with one of the largest, if not the largest knife mfg to create something more people could afford. The knife is his custom geometry (modified euro style blade, high rounded choil...). Zwilling is using the highest end material that they source (sg2, micarta) and factory (Seki, JP) to produce this knife. You can find custom knife makers to make you something that would work better for you and your application but from what I've seen it starting cost is $1k+. You can buy a knife that is 90% of this knife and half the price though, look for Miyabi on SD. A 5.5"-6.5" chef knife is preferred by most people as their main use, most tasks knife.

Care:
This knife must be handled with care. The steel used is very hard, meaning it stays sharp longer and can be sharper. The problem with this steel is that it is brittle, I personally have cracked a knife tip dropping it on the ground. Do not use it to hack through bone. The knife must always be hand washed. A note about hand washing, it literally takes 15 seconds to wash a knife don't fret. Lastly, you'll want a professional to sharpen this, or you'll need to learn how to sharpen steel. The steel is hard and the angle is steep. Even high end pull-thru knife sharpeners will scratch the damascus finish of the blade. For sharpening look for things labeled as having a Japanese edge angle and made with diamond/ceramic coating.

My choice:
I have most major high end knife brands: shun, miyabi, wustof, global. I ended up buying two of these Kramer knives, one to use and one as an heirloom showpiece.
.
Oh, I was drinking coffee early and fell down the rabbit hole. I would rather peruse SD than turn on the news for the never ending negative propaganda.

Bob Kramer is seemingly a down to earth guy that followed his passion and has done well. He started out sharpening knives for some side money while working at a restaurant and attending college. It is one of those rags to riches stories when someone follows their passion to become one of the best in their profession.
Although I stopped at 50, just curious why the first 50 five star reviews all began with....

.
Thinking I want one of those 'promotion' deals...

A real Bob Kramer [kramerknives.com] knife sells for a lot more money (one sold on eBay for $13,000), but the OP made in Japan licensed versions are good knives. Besides Damascus, there are also other licensed versions including SS and 52100 Steel. Here is a video [youtube.com] of Kramer making a knife, where he includes pieces of iron from a meteorite. And here is Bob Kramer making another knife [youtube.com] with Brad Leone from start to finish.

Cool video and makes me want one (the real thing I mean): but not sure I get what value the meteorite adds besides the cool factor. I mean, it could be .001% of the product and add a whole lot of $ to his price just for saying it's in there, while contributing nothing to the actual quality.
And stilll… thanks to OP, I may get one of these.

Yea, I don't know if it was a piece of a star, or a piece of a satellite that came out of orbit. But, pretty cool in a Damascus knife as one of the layers you can see on the blade. I don't think every knife has it. Personally, I like the 52100 steel as a good knife, but reasonable.

You might be able to go out there and make your own knife with his help. The phone number was on the sign in the video.

These super special knives transcend function and become art. They CAN be used as a knife, but the blade is a medium for his art.

Thanks. Repped.

All useless info for me as I'm 100% not spending $200 on a knife but insightful. No idea why I even click on these deals lol.
