The 6-inch blade of this chef's knife works great for slicing, chopping, dicing, and more. Like many Asian-style cutlery, the knife's handle is especially suited to smaller users. In contrast to the traditional round profile, however, Shun's are D-shaped to prevent the knife from twisting in the hand, which provides extra stability and a firm grip. The handle is made from ebony-colored PakkaWood, a fused blend of hardwood veneers imbued with waterproof resin that combines the warmth and traditional look and feel of wood with the strength and durability of plastic. The offset stainless-steel bolster is designed for ergonomic comfort and maximum safety, while a stainless-steel end cap provides the finishing touch. Hand washing the knife is recommended. The chef's knife measures approximately 10 by 2 inches and carries a limited lifetime warranty. --Mary Park

Note to sharpness snobs: NO stainless knife can touch an old-fashioned carbon steel knife for sharpness. If you don't believe me, go and see what your butcher uses. The problem with old-fashioned carbon steel knives is that they are very high- maintenance and will look ugly after a while no matter what you do.
Personally, if I had to choose, I'd take the Wusthof solely on the basis of my personal feel and the fact that the blade is a little easier to hone than the Shun. I am just glad I don't have to choose, but if you do, I can't recommend strongly enough getting out to a store and handling the knives before you buy. When you're in this neighborhood, about the only way you can choose badly is by not buying the knife that feels best in your own hand. You're going to get a top-quality product whichever way you go.
This was one of the first higher end knives I purchased, and if I could do it over again I probably would not have purchased it (or I would have purchased it used to save a little money). It isn't that the knife is terrible...the handle is comfortable, the cosmetics are pleasing, and it outperforms many big box knives...BUT, it is priced higher than other knives with the same level of performance. For example, a Tojiro 8in Chefs Knife costs less than a third the price of this Shun, and, while not as cosmetically pretty, I think it performs much better and that Tojiro produces better VG-10 steel than Shun does. If this Shun was around $60-80, it would be an awesome addition to the kitchen. But at this current price range, I think there are better options available and that potential buyers may want to examine other options before pulling the trigger on this Shun.
Being a bit of a knife nut, I have purchased many different style kitchen knives over the years. Some have been less than $5 and some over $500.Read more ›
