Shun Edo Santoku Knife

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. Combining the strengths of a chef's knife and cleaver, this santoku knife is indispensable for chopping, slicing and dicing. 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. Handcrafted in Japan.

Superb Santuko
July 30, 2012
I owe several Shun knives but this was first Santuko. It is a bit heavider than my German-made Santukos but has great balance and feel to it and it is as sharp as all the Shun blades.
Pros: Easy to Use, Balance, Easy to Clean, Versatile, Sharpness

Greatest Knife I Have Ever Owned.
March 9, 2012
I'm a chef and have been almost all my life. i have used many types and brands of knives. i have come to the realization that a great knife is a necessity and this knife is perfect. well balanced and a perfect fit for any size hand. The description is deceiving though, the knife i bought in store is actually 7.5'' which in my opinion is better. if you are use to using German steel this is a great transition due to the similarity in weight and durability. so happy with my purchase. highly recommended.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Size, Versatile, Weight
