Shun Premier

Upgraded my wifes global knives to Shun Premier, we are both more than happy with the knives, I bought these because they had a VG-10 core, which i have found good on my other blades. I'm in Australia & I found Knife Center excellent to deal with.

Great Slicer

I use this knife for small slicing applications, not for detailed paring work. In a paring knife, I want a narrow blade section, to allow for constant redirection of cut angles. This knife's section is too deep for such cutting, but it's ideal for slicing small stuff. The hammered surface does seem to cut down on friction/adhesion, which is nice. The edge is extremely sharp and (thus far) has held quite well. The handle is comfortable and versatile, and the balance is terrific. On a purely aesthetic note, this knife is absolutely beautiful!

Nice paring knife

I use this knife for many small cutting jobs around the kitchen - tomatoes, broccoli, salamis. The blade stays sharp as long as I hone it. I like the look - the irrregular finish of the blade and the wood handle. Only thing I do not like, and it is minor, is the blade finish is too shiny. But that does not effect performance.
