Yikes -- Miyabi Koh Santoku 5.5 Ordered

W8lkinUSA | Oct 31, 201807:33 PM     16

Oops. I just did a thing....

I burned an hour waiting for Apple Store Support by browsing Sur La Table. Having been processing more vegetables lately, I've found my 7'' Victorinox Santoku to be too large for daily use while cooking for one.

I thinly sliced some potatoes with a few 5'' santoku knives. Even though the Miyabi Koh 5.5'' wasn't terribly comfortable, I managed to fly though thin slices and thin julienne potatoes with ease. I suspect its light weight helped. Being out of stock, they helped me order one for delivery to my home.

I don't know much about knife material, but it's made of FC61 stainless steel. Have I made a mistake?

EDIT: I like salt and lime on thinly sliced jalapenos and onions. I think my 60-day in-home trial may go very well.
