The "heavy-handle" is a misnomer.
June 2, 2012
I was disappointed when I opened the package. The picture online and the title, "heavy-handle", led me to believe that I would be getting a much chunkier handle like the ones we already have. The blade is close to our set.
Merchant Response:We were surprised at your comment as all our customers do consider this heavy. Perhaps a large man might not .
Pros:The look is nice, satin as described, and the blade is great for spreading butter, etc.
Cons:The handle is not heavy and thicker, which is better for grasping and holding, especially for a man.
