Shun Kaji Rocking Knife

From our premium Kaji line by Shun, this knife rocks effortlessly over the cutting board to mince and chop herbs, garlic, onions, nuts and more, with its pronounced curve and broad, hefty blade. The expansive surface area of the blade also makes it handy for transferring chopped foods. Crafted in Japan, its strong, razor-sharp blade merges new technology and centuries-old handcrafting traditions. Blades are constructed with a core of SG-2 powdered steel clad in a true Damascus layer of forged nickel and stainless steel. Inspired by centuries-old samurai sword-making techniques, the blades' construction creates a supersharp cutting edge. Blade's pronounced curve facilitates a rocking motion for efficient chopping and mincing. Handles are made of moisture-resistant, resin-infused PakkaWood, shaped for comfort and control. These NSF-certified knives meet the high-level hygiene standards for professional kitchens. Handcrafted in Japan. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Took some getting used to

but I absolutely love it. I find myself reaching for this knife over my chef or Santoku knives. Nicely balanced . . .and the rocking motion one can achieve with the exaggerated curve of the blade, makes quick and easy work of dicing.
I use the same waxy polish and food grade mineral oil on the handles of my Shuns that I use on my cutting board to keep the wood well conditioned. Even with heavy use, the knives look new.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Sharpness, Shape, Weight

Big time disappointment
March 1, 2013
I absolutely love the Shun Kaji Nakiri knife. The balance is exquisite. Just enough heft in the handle to power the work without fatigue. I bought the Kaji Rocking Knife sight unseen/felt. That was a not a good thing.
The Rocking knife is too lightweight to do the job. It feels flimsy in the hand. The blade itself doesn't mince with ease. My old chef knife is better. A total waste of money.
Cons: Weight, Difficult to Store, Sharpness, Dull
