Some people say they got rust spots on these knives. Well more expensive knives have a good side and a bad side. They are great because you get better blade profiles, with a blade that holds an edge a lot longer and is much easier to sharpen, but the down side is they are prone to rust. You shouldn't just leave these knives laying in a wet sink for days like you can do with cheaper knives. You should do that with any higher end knife because they will all get rust spots. Also I can not stress this enough. Do not put these knives in the dishwasher. When you finish using them. Hand wash them in soap and water. Hand dry them really good and put them back on your knife rack. Also make sure you knife isn't wet from placing wet knives on it. Putting your good knives on a wet knife rack is a good way to get rust spots.Read more ›
This Shun knife is easy to use, easy to handle, and a joy to cut with. The knife itself is a VG10 cutting core with stainless steel along with a handsome multi-layered pseudo hand hammered and mirror-polished Japanese 420J blade upper and a double sided 16-degree cutting edge. Who needs serrated knives when what you really need is a knife that is razor sharp. Potatoes and tomatoes are no match for this knife, it almost glides through by itself just by touching the food!
The comfortable handle is textured PP/TPE polymer. Not slippery and easy to handle.
Now to buy the Sora Chef's and Boning knives to complete the necessary kitchen duties! And don't forget to have a proper sharpener. I used to have an electric sharpener, but became unhappy when it just did not seem to get my older knives as sharp as I might like. So these Sora knives will never see anything but the "Chef's Choice Pronto Santoku/Asian Manual Knife Sharpener" http://www.amazon.com/Choice-Pronto-Santoku-Manual-Sharpener/dp/B002JIMVS0 that I am very happy with. In fact, even those older knives that were not getting sharp enough seem sharper when run through this Chef's Choice sharpener.
