Rated 5 out of 5 by deez from Great Gift This was purchased as a gift. If you want to score points with those around you that do all the cooking, this is the gift to give!Date published: 2015-01-29Rated 5 out of 5 by ShunFujiSan from Shun Fuji Santoku 5.5" My wife got me this SG2 knife after we bought and tried the 6.5" Chef's Shun Fuji. Just as sharp, if not sharper! Very smooth cutting vegetables and fruits. My wife even engraved my initials! What a nice touch. I simply love Shun Fuji knives and would be looking forward to add more...to my collection.Date published: 2015-01-13Rated 3 out of 5 by KitchenPhil from Wish the craftsmanship was better The design of the knife is unique. I like the double-d handle shape and the tagayasan wood handle used. The knife is light and sharp which makes this tool a daily favorite. Unfortunately, considering the premium price and also the Fuji line is one of the top of the line from WS, the finishing craftsmanship is poor. I literally looked at more than a dozen of them - visited 3 stores, before choosing one that was satisfactory. Good + Design + Light + Sharp - SG2 steel core + Tagayasan wood handle Bad – Poor finishing – Butt of the knife had uneven and unfinished grinding and faint & uneven embossing – Couple of wood handles were poor wood quality - tiny cracks, brittle appearance, unpolished – The damascus layering ran down to the edge of the blade – The bolster had poor inconsistent polishingDate published: 2014-02-13Rated 3 out of 5 by ecami from nice but heavier than expected well balanced but heavier than one would expect for premium Japanese knife technology.Date published: 2012-09-20Rated 5 out of 5 by MasterChef83 from Hefty price, but worth every penny. I own the Shun Class 8 Piece Block set, and I had to get my hands on this, regardless of what the wife told me. Incredibly sharp, true Damascus blade, and it does cut finer then my Shun Classics. Go out and get one!Date published: 2012-02-03Rated 5 out of 5 by cjv1 from Delightfully Sharp, Balanced an Comfortable to Use I have always used the chef's knife in the past. Went to the WS store in Santa Clara, CA and tried both the Fuji Chef and Santoku for feel. It's a personal thing, but I loved the feel of the Fuji Santoku. The knife is sharp beyond anything other than a Steel Damascus blade and it holds it's sharpness especially if you use a ceramic honing rod.Date published: 2012-01-06
