"Why did you choose this product?"
A friend of mine had one of these. When I felt how smooth and clean it cut, this became my next purchase. I bought this one and I find every excuse to use it in the kitchen. Funny thing, whenever I clean the blade, I end up slicing apart parts of the sponge. Wash by hand and dry, but be careful to not slice through and into your hand. Something to note: DON'T use a glass or vinyl cutting board. It will dull the blade as it warns in the blade care guide. I went out and spent a few bucks for a couple of new bamboo cutting boards. A well built blade....
ITEM#: 15250912Made from VG-10 stainless steel, Shun knives are specially constructed to be harder, less brittle, but also more flexible than traditional steel formulations. The VG-10 core is then clad with 16 full layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side, for a total of 33 layers. These layers not only protect the VG-10, they create an exquisitely-detailed surface reminiscent of Damascus or pattern-forged steel, the kind once used for Samurai swords. As a result, the knives are simply stunning to look at--much like antique Damascus knives but without their tendency to rust. As an additional benefit, the slight patterning helps slice rather than crush delicate foods and keeps cut food from sticking to the blade.

I knew this was a sharp knife, but I had went to use my old non-shun knife a while back and actually had to use force to cut through something the shun just slides through. I've been using this for about a month now and I can't imagine going back to normal knives. I'll be looking at replacing more of my other types of knives with Shun Classics. Did I mention it is also beautiful? Always trying to show it off.Read More
I'd never tried a Japanese knife, now I'll never go back! It has replaced my Henckel, Global and Wusthof knives. Razor sharp and handle feels great. Love it.Read More
