Amateur's DelightMy daughter recommended that I start to buy quality cutery and I am happy that I followed her advice.I have disposed of all of my other kitchen knives and I will purchase other Shun Classic Knives in the future.This knife makes cooking easy and non-problematic when it comes to cutting vegetables and fruits. Especially tomatoes and other soft vegetables.

Good Knife for People with Big HandThis is a very good knife if you have big hand. I have small hand, the handle is too long. I like to hold the knife closer to the blade.

awesome knifeIn the kitchen, I have a knife for every special occasion and need. How I survived my many years without this knife for my fruits and veggies, I certainly do not know. IT IS AWESOME plain and simple !!! Slices thin as I need with effortless pressure. Straight from the box, the knife impressed me with its cutting effectiveness. Easy to maintain (hone somewhat regularly) and care for. Highly recommend this knife !!!
