Product Description

A Santoku knife (Santoku meaning "three virtues" in Japanese) is used for chopping, slicing and mincing. The Shun Sora Hollow-Ground Santoku knife is perfect for all these tasks and more. Sora, in Japanese, means "sky". Let your imagination take you-the sky's the limit with what you can do with your Shun Sora Knives. Featuring our proprietary composite blade technology that brings together a VG10 cutting edge, clad with one layer of stainless steel on each side to create a san mai edge, with a mirror-polished Japanese 420J stainless steel upper. Boasting a razor-sharp 16-degree cutting angle on each side of the blade, Sora puts all the high-performance technology where it's needed most: the cutting edge. Laser-cut, 2-sections are fit together and braze welded to permanently join them. Blade shapes and handles are designed for traditional Japanese knives, while the beautiful wavy pattern on each blade is reminiscent of Japanese sword hamon lines. The hollow-ground feature makes tiny air pockets which help with food release from the blade. Each handle is made with a textured TPE polymer handle that provides balance, and is easy to maintain. The texture of each handle provides a tacky surface when wet, making them superior to use around juicy fruits, vegetables and meat. A stunning Shun knife at an incredible price point; you can afford to have one in every style!

If this is the low end of the SHUN then I can just imagine what the PREMIER, EDO, and the KEN ONION line can do. These knifes are crazy sharp. I did all of my research on the shun brand and the VG-10 hybrid steel they use to make the blades. The blade is so sharp out of the box that I spend about 2 minutes just cutting random stuff just for fun. I have been making my own knife set and I was trying these knifes out at first and now I decided to make my whole set the Sora line and I have not been let down by them. I have had the other German forged steel knifes and was very disappointed in them. They did not stay sharp long and cosmetically very unpleasant and they did not stay sharp that long. Very pleased with my purchase of these knifes and SHUN has a customer for life.

Pros:
Sharp
Free sharpening for life provided by Kai Wasabi (makers of Shun)
Good value to price

Cons:
Plastic Handel
Limited on how many times these can be sharpened over the life of the knife as only part of the knife is VG10 steel

Other thoughts:
The cutting edge and weight are really nice, although a bit toward the lighter side.

Maintenance:
For those new to having nice knifes, make sure you DON'T put these in the dishwasher. The solvents in dish washing fluid will rust these faster than salt water even for 1 wash. Always hand wash your knifes by hand!

Value:
The step up from this knife is a $20 difference. So in retrospect you can get a full VG10 blade for spending a bit more

My husband is a chef by trade, and has been looking for a 'good' everyday knife for our kitchen to train me on. This one was recommended to me by a friend, and it has not disappointed us. It has great balance, and is incredibly sharp. Will buy more Shun products for him.

This review is the same as all of my other reviews of the Shun Sora Knives and that is....This knife is very elegant and I love using it. It has a very sharp blade which is really nice to use and to look at. This knife will cleanly slice through bread, vegetables and meats like no other knife that I have ever used. The ergo's on the handle are extremely nice and it fits in hand really well. All in all this is very impressive knife. My only complaint (and why I gave it 4 stars and not 5) is with the flexibility of the blade. This knife and all of the other knives in the Shun Sora collection all make a scary sound when you flex them from side to side. I am not sure if it is coming from the handle or the blade itself. It sounds like the blade will snap in half if you flex it more than a few degrees to either side. This knife was not cheap but not too expensive however, I am not willing to test the lateral strength of the blade to see if it will hold up to hard use. Granted it is a kitchen knife and not made for hard use but I feel that a kitchen knife has to be able to flex from side to side without fearing it will break.

I had no idea knives could be so sharp. My wife loves the look and feel. Best Mother's Day gift.

Great knife! Doesn't hold an edge as well as my Shun Ken Onion blades, but I never expected that, at this price point. The blade is absolutely beautiful, it's well-balanced, it does hold a decent edge, and the plastic gets grippy when it's wet. It can still be a touch brittle - a common complaint with Shun knives - but it's making a really great every day knife.

The knife was exactly what I expected. It was so much sharper than any knife in my house that when I started cutting with it, it seemed that the knife went through what I was cutting before I started pushing it down. It definitely improved that preparation aspect of my cooking, and I would recommend it to anyone.
