Shun Classic 6-1/2-Inch Stainless-Steel Nakiri Knife

6.5 inch shun nakiri

Mark Hernen

Pros: keeps edge for a long time, well balanced

Cons: not a utility knife it isnt somthing you want to try and use as a primary goto

I have had this knife for about four years now and I love it I use it all the time during service because of its small size I find its easy to have out and can hold its edge well enough to do the quick small jobs that are needed when on the line (i.e scoring fish skin cutting chops out of a rack of lamb. I used to work in a small kitchen with limited space so having my French knife out on...

Tojiro-DP Chef's Knife 9.4" (24cm)

Tojiro-DP Chef's Knife 9.4" (24cm)

“ I own Misono UX10, Shun, and Tojiro. Not quite as sharp as the Shun or Misono ootb, but with a little work on the 1k stone it can be even sharper  than the Misono but with a little more heft and rigidity, which I love. I work in the kitchen of a major luxury hotel brand and It just seems to get better with heavy use.  Overall  theTojiro DP is amazing for the price....” --pjheard

Shun Kaji Fusion Santoku Knife, 7-Inch

“I originally received a set of these as a gift. the 7 inch knife is one of my favorites. Typically sharp Japanese type blade with a really solid handle. The weight surprised me at first, but I've come to really enjoy the ease of using this knife. If you have not tried a knife with this type of grip/handle it may take some getting used to, but overall it's a wonderful knife that will probably...” --

Wusthof Ikon 7-Inch Santoku Hollow Edge, Blackwood

Wusthof Ikon 7-Inch Santoku Hollow Edge, Blackwood

“ Pretty good knife. I love Wusthof because of their high quality German steel and the research they put into ergonomics. This knife is for anyone who likes a knife with weight and a good feel. The blade isn't super sharp and I usually end up sharpening mine a few times a day, but it's as good as German steel gets. Anyone who wants a santoku that keeps a super sharp edge, should go Japanese....” --slowjuicerdave
