Top Customer Reviews
The Shun gyuto is best used for slicing but I prefer a santoku blade for dicing. It has maintained its edge by regular sharpening (at 16 degree angle), immediate washing/drying by hand after each use and careful storage.
Originally these knives were individually forged and hand made. Recently, for the past decade, they have been mass produced and machine stamped. Although this is an excellent knife, it falls short compared to a hand-crafted Japanese blade such as Hattori or Matsuda brands.
I would add a couple of warnings.
1. Handle with care, they are really really sharp and cut so effortlessly.
2. They need special care, and it is well worth investing the time to learn how, and the money to get the right tools. The wrong sharpener will damage the knife.
