Pros: Easy to Sharpen, Cheap, Can take a beating, Effective
Cons: It looks like a cheap plastic handle Although I perfer the fibrox over wood
What I really love about this knife is the value for the quality. It is very cheap and arrives very sharp. I bought this knife after asking my teacher what knife she would recommend to learn on and learn to sharpen on a whetstone with. I love it the only real con other than looking like cheap plastic is the blade is highly polished and veggies stick to it. That was easily solved on the side of a whetstone It may not look pretty but this knife is well made and great to learn on. If you do something really stupid with it like let a coworker try and cut open a can with it you can replace it for very little money compared to ruining a shun.
