This Shun Classic Santoku With Hollow Edge is a great all around replacement for a chef knife. Shun knives features the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without its rusting problems. The Damascus-look blade profile reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times.
VG-10 stainless steel is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side, producing a rust-free Damascus style
VG-10 "super steel" is composed of Carbon, Chromium, Cobalt, Manganese, Molybdenum, Silicon and Vanadium
VG-10 holds an incredibly sharp edge longer for easier edge maintenance
Black Pakka Wood handles specifically designed for premium applications.
Having recently used this knife a bit,I can easily recommend this knife. The steels held an edge at least as well as any other quality kitchen knives Iíve used,and it came quite sharp. The handle is also very comfortable,and the build quality is great. The hollowed out sections on the blade didnít seem to do much,though,so Iíd recommend the normal one instead.
Feels good in my hands. Very sharp,does a nice number on ripe tomatoes.

This knife does everything I had hoped for. It slices paper thin,cuts through meat and veggies with little pressure and is easier to wield than the longer version.

Chefknivestogo.com has been a great help for my kitchen. Offering some of the best knifes on the market it was a difficult choice on brands. I ended up purchasing the 7 in Shun santuko. I received my blade in a timely fassion and its superior edge went right to work. Thanks again from a true geek of chef knives.
Shun knives are wonderful and this one is no exception. Very sharp out of the box.
