Brand new knife already dull?

Nocontact | Jan 10, 2012 11:45 PM

So when I was choosing a new knife I nicked myself twice on the display knives at Kitchen Stuff plus. When I got my new henckel chefs knife home I was being careful because I thought I was dealing with something much sharper than I was used to. This was about 2 weeks ago and it already seems that the knife has either dulled or never was as sharp as I thought. I just spent 120$ on a knife. I don't really think it's fair to be expected to shell out another 20$ to get it sharpened so soon.

How do you all test if your knife is as sharp as it 'should' be? I can't get all the way through an onion easily to do a proper dice, and I felt like it was dragging a bit on the soft tomato I was testing it on. Very frustrating!
