Rated 5 out of 5 by EJL42 from Does its job well I have many Shun Classics and this one doesn't disappoint. It is my go to knife for tomatoes or other soft skin fruits/veg. I consider it a staple in my Shun lineup.Date published: 2018-10-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Homeuser from Awesome to use Like the entire Shun line, this knife is extremely sharp and balanced. I'm a home cook who never knew that slicing could be so easy and so much fun.Date published: 2017-01-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Pumpkin715 from My go to knife I loved this knife so much I bought a second one for my husband when we're cooking together. I use it everyday and have bought each of my daughters one for gifts. It just works on everything. I have a lot of shun knives (only ones I buy) but this one is so versatile it gets used daily. I do not put it in the dishwasher and it looks like new. I have yet to sharpen it.Date published: 2016-08-12Rated 4 out of 5 by Cookingupnorth from Great Knife This is a great knife. I can see why other reviewers would bring this one to a deserted island. The knife is smaller than I expected but has no trouble getting through any fruits or veggies.Date published: 2015-05-28Rated 5 out of 5 by awright from My Deserted Island Knife This is the knife I'd pick if I were shipwrecked. It's my go-to knife and a real work horse.Stays sharp for a long time before you have to send it back to Shun for sharpening.Date published: 2013-11-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimball from Indispensable Knife I was very reluctant to spend over $100 on a single knife. After buying this knife and using it many times already, my only regret is that I didn't buy it years ago! This tool is definitely worth the expense. It slices through red peppers like butter. if you chop a lot of vegetables, this knife is indispensable! The 6" blade works for me as I don't like working with huge, scary knives. You won't regret this purchase.Date published: 2012-08-03
