This is a massive pizza cutting knife, which is actually its biggest detriment. It's solid, it's extremely sharp, and it's a no-frills pizza cutter that does its job wonderfully. My only complaint is that I can only ever really use it if we're making pizza on one of those large, circular pizza stones/crispers. I've had issues using it in any other capacity thus far and it's far too big to use on anything else (Comfortably) besides a pizza (or something else larger of that nature).
Wow! It's very large ! Nice and I like it. But it is not 18" overall length. Handle is almost 5" long each and pin itself measures 17.5", its total length is 27.5". 3" in diameter. It is big. Now I have to find the space to keep it. (Before ordering, I read" Q & A" on this item and it said 18 " overall length and I had a place in the drawer to keep it nicely.)
It's heavy duty and I really like it, so it's a keeper. There was no paperwork in the package. I was looking for the information on how to maintain this wood product before first use.
