Pros: beautiful knife, nice weight

Cons: It's a Shun so always babying it so it doesn't chip.

Got it on sale and is a really nice looking knife. It stays in the house. My other Shuns are in the knife kit and both missing tips.

Pros: You never have to grind this blade

Cons: Didn't like the handle

One of my first internet knives.  Great blade.  I mean *great* but the handle was a bit weird.  Right now it just sits at the bottom of my knife kit.

Pros: great handle, lightweight

Cons: hard to sharpen

easily the best knife that i have seen/used yet. the thin blade makes for easy work and with continual chopping for 12 hour shifts, i couldnt ask for a better blade. there may be an issue when it comes time to sharpen it. the dimples come that far down the blade that when u put it on a stone there is not going to be enough clearance, It should be fine to use on a diamond steel though.
