This knife has serrations which make it perfect for fast, easy, no-pressure slicing of tomatoes, peppers, herbs, cantaloups, rolls, etc, and it is great for peeling and segmenting citrus. It's long enough that it slices a sandwich and short enough to cut the peel off an orange. My mother has a painful nerve condition in her hands and she reports a lot less pain using this knife because it requires so little force to use. The blade stays sharp, like most Shun knives will for years, the serrations give it some ""grip"" and the handle feels right in your hand when you use it. The serrations conveniently seem to reduce your chance of cutting yourself, too, as you have some warning from the teeth before you're about to slice into your finger.
It's a precision tool and does require just a little consideration. Like any kitchen knife you care about, you can't run it through the dishwasher. Since it has a wooden handle, you shouldn't leave it laying in water, and it will rust-spot should water stay on the blade for a long time (think multiple days - and the rust spots will scrub off with a little effort and the scratchy side of the sponge). Otherwise I can't think of anything at all negative.
I cannot say enough good things about this knife. It's great, you won't be sorry
This a great sandwich building knife. Love the sharp point for coring tomatoes and it is gentle enough to shred lettuces and strong enough to cut through the sandwich of different densities: think: BLTs or ham and swiss. Lovely addition to my addiction
