1 people found this review helpfulThis is a great utility/slightly oversize petty, or undersized slicer. VG10 isn't everyone's favorite, but it is still a pretty good steel, and Shun's fit and finish is nothing if not superb. Very sharp out of the box, and excellent for cutting supremes from all size citrus (salad station, anyone?). Great for detail work, and would be adequate for some line positions. It will do most of the work you would use a paring knife for, and gives you the blade length for bell peppers, potatoes, and big tomatoes. 1.6mm spine, and paper thin behind the edge, tomatoes don't stand a chance. great for detail work, and garnishes, or mincing garlic and shallots. No paring knife in my roll, between this and a 120mm petty, all the small work is taken care of. You're not going to be chopping or rocking (it'll stick in the board), but wicked thin slicing is a dream come true, even for carpaccio.
