JUST BOUGHT A SHUN CHEF'S KNIFE

jono37 | Feb 10, 200710:10 PM     5

Yes, I finally junked my 15-year old no-name chef's knife that recently produced a one-inch slice to my right index finger. My local cutlery purveyor was trying very hard to sell me a Santoku, but I am a tall guy with big hands, and felt that the Shun 8-inch was better. Honestly, I had a hard time choosing betwen the 8 and 10 inch. Oh, and he sold me a Haenckels paring knife and a diamond steel also. So far have chopped an onion, garlic, and a chile de arbol. So far so good. I don't know if it's changed my life yet, but seems OK so far. If I keep all my fingers for the next 50 years I guess I'll be satisfied.
