I also have a Shun 6.5 utility which would fill a similar role, ootb sharpness is right on par with the Shun, even just a tick better, but where this knife excels is in agility. Making garnishes, peeling potatoes, or for sushi cooks paring cucumber fans, or rolls this thing is a godsend. Super thin grind, with a tick of distal taper out to where the grind meets the spine, and drops of to what seems like just a couple atoms thick. Paper thin tomato slices, are not a problem, it laughs at bread, even soft bolillo rolls. You won't be taking apart chickens with this, not sure I'd want to risk a blade on bone encounter, but for paring, and peeling citrus to potato, and cutting supremes, I doubt you are going to get too much better than this for this price. It's carbon, but come on, you are wiping your knife at a minimum between each piece of food, aren't you?
