A. Gabriele: I have owned one (the same one) for about 15 years and I use it several times daily. A very useful item. I use it as a counter scraper when baking and as a salad and sometimes nut chopper, also to scrape the cook-top on my ceramic range. I sharpen it on a diamond stone every couple of years, it holds its edge well. I wash it mostly by hand but sometimes in the dishwasher. The hard rubber handle shows no sign of age. The blade is 1mm thick. I rounded the corners slightly to prevent gouging when I use it to scrape my wood cutting boards. I scrape with the blade near perpendicular to the surface, bad for any blade but it holds its edge so hey.
A.K.: It's not sharp enough to do any serious chopping, and not very ergonomic for that purpose either. But if you already have it out for another reason, give it a shot and see if it works well enough to avoid dirtying up a knife. I use it for scraping and pastry work, and it works fabulous for both of those purposes. I downgraded it a star because the handle is thicker than it needs to be and takes up unnecessary space in the drawer. A thinner handle would make it 5 stars for me.
Alice Baland "Alice Baland, Your Dream Achiev...: I've never used one of these before, always just a knife, but it is wondrous, making pie crust making simpler and easier. Quality made to last and easy cleaning.
Amadeus "Adi": First and only item of its kind I ever owned/bought, can't compare to anything else. It is realy useful portioning the dough, scraping the dough from the counter, a lot better than the knife I previously used. I had to take one star away only because I wish it was longer sized - I make bread in large batches in a Bosch mixer, 5-6 loaves at a time - for smaller amounts of dough however it should work just fine. Hope this helps.
Amazon Customer "Barbie": If you like to bake like I do, there are times when your dough or pastry sticks,(especially when you have it just the way you like it). This makes picking up that dough or pastry so much easier, with out ruining it. Recommend for all bakers.
