favorite knife
October 23, 2013
Just used my Shun Haru 5 1/2" Santoku knife for several days. It's a miracle. I love it. I finally found a knife that's a joy to use. I am left handed and see no problem with using it. It is scary sharp. A TV food show host recommended a different knife and I was very disappointed with his recommendation, it's now being sharpened at a professional blade shop.
I hope that my new knife remains so wonderful. I am taking care to keep it separated from everything else in the kitchen.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Size, Strength, Sharpness, Weight

PERFECT BALANCE & SUPER SHARP
October 7, 2013
I LOVE the way this knife fits in my hand; it's SO comfortable. Somehow the balance seems just right and it's SOOOO sharp that I have to remember to be extra careful. I had grown weary of my German knives; they just were not maintaining their sharp edge. So when a Williams-Sonoma associate brought the Shun knives to my attention I ended up buying the basic set PLUS the knives that I knew I would use and this was one of the extra knives I chose. It maintains its super sharp edge; IT'S PERFECTION PERSONIFIED!!!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Size, Strength, Versatile, Sharpness, Weight
Cons: wish i could have more
