The UHC Kitchen Knife also has a blade a bit over 8" long and .060" thick. The blade is narrower however, and is only 1 1/4" wide. The handle is about 5" long. The knife weighs about 5 1/4 ounces, and wouldn't be tiring to use for long periods. This would be a good all around kitchen knife for the chef who prefers a narrower blade. It's supplied with a wood storage block.
