Shun Edo 8" Chef's Knife With Stand

Shun Edo's reputation for superior power and control is reflected in the extraordinary appearance of their cutlery. The VG-10 steel blade's eye-catching hammered pattern reduces drag and helps food release easily, and the handle's tear-drop shape and broad bolster facilitate a variety of cutting techniques. This chef's knife's superb balance make it perfect for chopping firm vegetables, mincing herbs and julienning celery The blade's weighty feel takes the hard work out of more demanding tasks such as quartering a chicken. Wide bolsters and ergonomic grips reduce tension and fatigue while providing added leverage. Incredibly dense VG-10 "Super Steel" blade is tempered for exceptional hardness and edge retention. The hammered pattern ("tsuchime" in Japanese) helps the blade pass easily through food without sticking. Handle is made from resin-infused PakkaWood for lasting moisture resistance. Shun's knife-making technique draws upon the traditions of Japanese sword-making while employing state-of-the-art technology. This NSF-certified knife meets the high-level hygiene standards of commercial kitchens. Includes a bamboo display stand. Handcrafted in Japan.

Good, but not Great
July 30, 2012
A very well made knife with good balance and a nice feel in the hand. Nevertheless, I ended up returning it because it did perform any better than my Shun Classic or my Shun Ken Onion. In fact, I thought the thicker blade hindered its slicing ability ever so slightly in comparison with my other two knives.
Pros: Quality, Balance, Size, Shape, Weight
Cons: Sharpness

My number one knife
July 30, 2012
This is actually my second Shun Edo chef's jknife, the first is still in fine working order. I find the steel on the Suhns are a little softer than the German blades but this holds it's edge nicely and this is true workhorse in the kitchen.
Pros: Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Sharpness, Weight
