Compared to other knives with similar features, VG-10 Damascus, nice handle and fit & finish, its not bad for the price. However the profile is just plain annoying to use, it has mor belly than a European knife like a Forschner, to the point where its very detrimental, especially when shopping large volume or doing tip work. Some people may not care so much though. However, the free sharpening service is great for those who are afraid to get their feet wet sharpening. If you don't care about the belly and want a sharpening service, and like the overall package Shun offers, its worth buying.
