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
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
I'd like to get this set to complement my growing collection, but I'm not sure if my current knives will fit in the block. I have four, ranging in length from 3- to 8-inch. How many extra slots are there
I'm wondering if the utility knife included in the set has a serrated or scalloped blade?
