You might be here after that advertisement (as seen in TV). Well to be honest that’s kind of exaggerating but still I won’t say it’s a bad quality knife. And to me it’s far better than any other kitchen knife in this price range.

The main blade is 8 inch in length with a 5.5 inch handle quite suitable for all kind of users. It’s not only great in looks but the blade is functional as hell. Although it needs to be sharpened after a fair time of use but when it first came to me I did test it on water bottles and avocado stuff and it stood pretty well.

But I wasn’t very confident to try it on ice and other hard things as I wanted to use it further. Of course I bought it myself. And don’t even think about cutting another knife with it you will just mess it up.

Halex Holdings claims it can be good for 50 years I am not sure to live that long but sure it’s a one in a lifetime knife. I’ve had mine for past 8 months and still doing great. Just clean and sharp it regularly and you will be good to go.

The knife has a clean straight ground blade as it’s intended to be used as a multipurpose kitchen knife doing all that slicing and dicing just fine. Usually I don’t like these riveted kind of handles as they come off really soon. But this knife has proven to be crafted by best blade smiths as 8 months in and not even a slight play.

Talking about the little paring knife which comes in handy is as great as the bigger one. With blade length 3.5 inch its best in category. A paring knife is something you use all the time in kitchen. From peeling fruits, mincing and cutting fine segments to bring more beauty to your food.

Before this one I was using Victorinox paring knife. Which is quite good but forged in fire won the competition. When it comes to paring knives they get bent sideways really easily and almost all the knives you see are usually chipped off from tips after time.

But I purposely applied side pressure on it the blade did bent but got back into shape right after I removed the pressure. However it wasn’t that easy to bend it at all at the first place.

Final Words

In 30 bucks I don’t think you will ever get anything better than forged in fire. I actually bought it to test but since then I am using it regularly. I am pretty sure it will not disappoint you. But at the end it’s always up to you as no one knows when you hit a jackpot. So you find something better than this then don’t forget to comment below.
