Pros: Overall Quality, Design, Sharpenability, Sharpness, Material Quality, None
Cons: Construction, Durability
I bought 6 and 8" Premier chef's knives. 8" was on sale and was cheaper than 6". In fact 8" does all the job for 6-8" chef's knives. It's lightweight, razor-sharp, cuts everything almost like a butter. I used Chef's Choice Pronto Manual Diamond Hone Asian Knife Sharpener Model 463 to sharpen the knife and it worked excellent for me. The blade came out maybe sharper than original. No need to use clever sharpening tools. However, you don't want to use this knife for cutting bones or anything hard. Use German steel (Zwilling, Wusthoff, etc.). They are more sturdy and you can use them even on porcelain. Shun's edge will crinkle or bend. It's a fantastic knife if you use it wisely.
