Beautifully crafted, refined elegant appearance. The extremely sharp 8-inch blade has excellent edge retention for precise slicing. The blade core is clad with layers of Damascus pattern stainless steel for attractive appearance. This precision knife requires careful handling and maintenance. The sharp thin 16 degree edge makes slicing feel effortless, but may chip if used for chopping. Works well for slicing tough slippery raw sea food—a challenge for thicker, less sharp blades. The black handle is made of PakkaWood®, a trade mark name for wood veneer impregnated with resin for durability. The handle has a D-shaped cross section designed to match the finger curvature of right-handed users. The blade core is VG-MAX, a proprietary Shun alloy described as an improvement over earlier production VG-10 with more corrosion resistance, strength, and better cutting performance. Both are premium alloys with high hardness and excellent edge retention but more brittle and prone to chipping than softer steels. Designed for slicing, NOT hard chopping. Hone and sharpen with care. Initial performance is excellent. It’s too soon to assess durability over time. Certified by NSF (National Sanitary Foundation) to meet the cleanability standards for use in commercial kitchens. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation to hand wash and dry immediately after use. Lifetime limited warranty and sharpening service for original registered owner. Made in Seti, Japan.

This 8" chefs knife is very well made, sharpens very well with little effort. Very good for cutting roasts and large vegetables. Holds it's edge very well when cutting on wood cutting boards. Fits in my storage block very well. Very easy to handle and hold in your hands. Slices turkey, beef and all other meats very well. I use it a lot on large vegetables when cutting , slicing or dicing.

This knife is really great. I'm not a chef by any stretch of the imagination, but I do cook a bit, and using a good knife can really make all the difference when it comes to prep. This one is sharp (and I'm sure will stay that way for quite a while) and well-balanced; it makes slicing up food a pleasure rather than a chore. My only complaint (if you can call it that) is that it isn't dishwasher safe, but that's true of any good knife, not just this one.

This is a very nice 8" chef's knife. It is well balanced with a nice round wood handle. The handle is on the smaller size for my big hands, but it fits my wife's smaller hands quite well. The knife is extremely sharp out of the box and out performs our other high priced knifes. It simply slides through whatever you are cutting with little or no effort.

A great nimble knife. Good for smaller hands. Still works fine for larger hands. A Beautiful blade. The knife is a bit thinner than my other knives which make it a bit lighter. I used it for about 4 hours so far preparing a Jambalaya dinner for 100 without any any stress or fatigue. (Look up how to hold a knife for a good primer). The bolster has a nice angle making it very comfortable. The weight of the knife is balanced right on the bolster. Very sharp out of the box!
