Just like most of you, I love knives and it seems like there are no such thing as "too many knives"... I own and have owned most of the big brands, but now I want a Shun chef's knife. I did some research and suddenly I was confronted with the idea of "superior steel" and when I was almost decided on a VG 10 bladed knife, I found that there is a "better" blade... The one made with SG-2 (The Elite series).
To all of you with experience on such matters... All your comments and toughts will be very appreciated. I'm a very visual person and I felt in love with the Shun "Edo" Chef's kife wich is made of VG-10 http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/shun-edo-8-inch-chefs-knife/?pkey=cknives-shun%7Ccutshnedo... But knowing that the Shun "elite" chef's knife (8" too) is made of SG-2... Now I'm not sure wich one will perform and keep his sharpness better. Both have the traditional chef's knife shape blade (Wich is the one that I'm so used to) and I like both on the looks department.
Best regards and let me know your toughts and if there is already a link to any other post that I'm missing on this same subject, let me know too.
Thanks in advance.
