My Deserted Island KnifeThis is the knife I'd pick if I were shipwrecked. It's my go-to knife and a real work horse.Stays sharp for a long time before you have to send it back to Shun for sharpening.
Kimball - Review from Williams-Sonoma
Indispensable KnifeI was very reluctant to spend over $100 on a single knife. After buying this knife and using it many times already, my only regret is that I didn't buy it years ago! This tool is definitely worth the expense. It slices through red peppers like butter. if you chop a lot of vegetables, this knife is indispensable! The 6" blade works for me as I don't like working with huge, scary knives. You won't regret this purchase.

Great Tomato KnifeLike other Shun Classic knives, this one is lightweight, comfortable to hold, and super sharp. The blade is a bit smaller than your typical 6" utility knife (Shun seems to have a habit of calling their unique knives in the 5" to 8" range "utility" knives for want of a better term) but it's a terrific tomato knife and for other soft foods requiring slicing with a serrated blade this would be an excellent choice.
