This Zhen knife claims to be a mimick of the Shun Chinese Chef Knife 8". Well, I own two of the Shun Chinese Chef Knives, and decided to purchase a Zhen one for my in-laws and also to test out the claims.

Out of the box, the Zhen knife is definitely very sharp. I did my usual "sharpness" test my slicing some food items (e.g. tomato, celery, semi-thawed chicken) and a piece of paper. I also test the blade against my thumb nail, which is a good indicator that the knife is sharp if the blade causes some friction against the nail. However, in comparison to the Shun knife, the Zhen knife blade is definitely slightly wider...maybe around 1.5 inch. Also, the Zhen knife weigh around 75% lighter than the Shun knife. One of the nice thing I like about my Shun Chinese Chef Knife is that its weight is just enough to assist with chopping food without me using much strength. With the Zhen knife, you do have to use a little more strength, but not much since the blade is pretty sharp. Finally, the handle of my Shun knife is straight, and the Zhen knife is a little curving downward. It was awkward to use at first since I am used to the straight handle of my Shun, but you get used to it pretty quickly.

Thus, overall I would give the knife a 5 star since it's a great quality knife and a great deal for the $59 price. However, since the company claims to be similar to the Shun Chinese Chef Knife, I knocked out a star since it's almost there (but not quite). Yes, I would seriously consider this knife again if my Shun ever got damaged considering I won't need to pay 3-4 times more in price to get the same Shun knife.

It came sharp enough to shave with, and I did.

Slicing is effortless, but it feels light. I actually appreciate how it balances in my hand.

The price is right. You're going to spend ~$200 for a knife of similar quality.

The handle is terrific. The tang was a solid piece of metal, ground flat in the middle, with the end cap left the width of the handle. It will last Forever. The grip is a sort of rubberized material, and it's bonded so tightly there is no place for water or gunk. I don't mean 'a crack thinner than a hair,' I mean there are no seams. I've used it twice daily for a year, and it's perfect. This is a better grip than my Wüsthoff knives. I especially like how the blade tapers into the handle, as it provides a very comfortable grip when holding the knife properly.

No Gimmicks. It seems like once you go above the $20 price range with a Chinese chef's knife, some cooking show personality or 'respected brand' is adding at least 100 bucks to the price tag. I know that is a valuable service because most people will never feel satisfied with their choice unless there is a brand or celebrity endorsement, but at the same time these products are usually marred with a logo, built from materials more suitable to European knives, or have 'distinctive' styling that gets in the way of functionality.

If you're the sort of person who has hand sharpened knifes since you were a kid and cooks by intuition, I think you'll find this knife a pleasure to use. But if you've been watching Alton Brown explain knives on youtube and he didn't rub you the wrong way, you should really spend the extra money and get Shun knives or whatever.

Caveats:
This is not a butcher's knife, as it is titled.

I own a few knifes from shun and the steel in this is compatible , holds its edge for a long time.
Factory edge is decent but would recommend using a 1000/6000 grit stone on it to get the edge
razor sharp . The knife profile is just AMAZING !!!, it is my go to knife at the moment and I
could not be happier with it.
