Yeah, it tapers down to nothing. No taper under the handle like an old Sab but I don't notice it. The shallots we get at work are the gassed/bleached whatever you get in large quanities and are hard as a rock and the outer layer defies a lot of edges. This one chows down. This is the longest my laser has sat unused. It is kind of scary.

So this cheap knife does shallots well? How about carrots?

I need to try carrots again. I used it when the edge was fresh from the box on carrots and I hated it. I used it the next night at work and it did everything fine. I am wondering if it had a wire edge from the factory or something making it get caught up or not be as sharp as it could be. It worked great after that initial use.

I sharpened it after I did the mustard patina so I will give carrots a go tomorrow. I have the day off.

The suspense is killing me...can't you go buy a few carrots and make some carrot cake or something?

I cut some of the big carrots at work into obliques without a problem.
