So I currently have the Shun classic line and love them and love the support and warranty. I was thinking of upgrading to the Shun Elite, and then discovered the Bob Kramer line both from Williams Sonoma and surlatable, as well as the Kaji series. They all seem to be made from the SG2 Steel so other than the handle what is the difference in all 4 paring knives even though they are the same steel, other than the handle. OH and of course the michel bras which is coated in titanium, but I hear that wears off.. Any advice help would be appreciated as I am about to spend a couple hundred on upgrading my knives. Should I just go with the "cheaper" elites?
Thanks in advance :)
