Holds edge and cuts through anything!
These knives are remarkable! I love Japanese knives because they are a little lighter, well balanced, often sharper, and hold their edge for longer. The Shun is cut at a 16th of a degree- these means it is a sharp (very sharp :)) knife AND it will hold its edge- it is also made out of true damascus steel, stainless, and VG-10 and has 32 layers!. I use these knives for everything from bread to fish and steak. If you bought these knives individually it would add up to well over $600!! Great value! I would only add an 8"" Chefs knife to this se

These Knives Changed My LIfe!
I apparently never really knew what a high quality, sharp knife was until I bought these knives upon a recommendation from a friend. ""Why would I possibly want to buy new knives, let alone one's this expensive?"" I asked him. Then he had me try one at the store. I was speechless. I had no idea what I was missing having been slaving away using my old wedding set for the last 22 years. These knives have literally been a lifesaver. No more sawing and struggling. The handles are balanced and comfortable to hold. Prepwork is a pleasure. They are super scary sharp and I respect them tremendously. I am adding to my collection slowly, but surely, purchasing others as I discover I need them. This was one of the smartest impulse buys I have ever made and I rarely go by impulse. I usually research every single thing I buy. I have absolutely no regrets

Blades that Chip- Shun knife set
I was so excited when my husband bought these knives for me for Christmas a few years ago because they are the sharpest knives I had ever used. It is a complete shame that after only a few years of using these knives the blades are chipping. Shouldn't these expensive knives last longer then a couple years?
It makes me wonder where the little sliver of metal goes. In the food I prepare? Yuck! I am very disappointed in the quality of steel especially with the price we paid

Flawless but over expensive
First of all,
I bought these thinking I could do a good job with them.
I was slightly disappointed that I ordered them online rather than wait for a friend to take me to the store near my house.
When they arrived I was impressed by the packaging and even more impressed with how they appeared. The design was immaculate and cutting was easy. I didn't like the sharpening aspect. Who knows how to sharpen a knife with a rod like instrument?
I believe these knives are for full time chefs who do not mind the oriental soundness of ""Shun."" In English that means ""to avoid.""
If you want to take a risk and try to respect the symbolism and oriental-ness of this high quality set of knives , think about the price too. If that does not set you back, go ahead, make seki city rich
