Shun Sora Knives: Your thought?

Shun has launched a cheaper line: Shun Sora.

For comparison, an 8" Shun Sora Chef's knife is: $80, whereas as an 8" Shun Classic Chef's knife is: $120.

Shun Sora knives are made from the same VG-10 steel core as the Shun Classic knives, and the blade profile is flatter -- which is nicer in my opinion. Sora knives do not have the Damascus pattern and the handles are made of plastic instead of wood.

What do you think?

I think Sora looks to be very nice. I actually prefer the Sora over the Classic, aside from the handle.
