Perfect!! Review by ChefD
I purchased this knife about 3 months after I purchased my first piece of Shun cutlery, and I could not be more pleased. I use this knife multiple times daily, it is quick and easy to clean, and it makes the everyday chopping and slicing of fruits and vegetables as easy as it could possibly be. The knife has a pleasant weight and balance in your hand. That, coupled with the extreme sharpness and amazing craftsmanship allows this knife to slice through even the hardest of rinds with minimal force from the user. It is by far the best everyday utility knife that I have ever used, and I recommend it without reservation. (Posted on 4/26/16)
