I love my big Shun classic. Has performed great for years. :001_302:



Those Shun Classics were my first entry into asian style knives. Man, that's going back probably 20 years...

Nice knives, I liked mine. Shun was the first (that I know of) "gateway" chef knife that took design elements from German/euro & Asian style chef knives and marketed them to the west. If you notice, those Shun Classics have much more belly than traditional asian knives.

Theres a good overview/comparison here...

My most used Miyabi Artisan and Kramer knives. In the drawer are some of my Lamson knives as well as other Kramer and Miyabi knives. The one Henkel knife is a 5” rocking santoku. I really like the rocking santoku. It’s a versatile knife and easier for my smaller hands to use than a full western chef knife. IMO the Miyabi is as sharp as the Kramer, but the Kramer is heavier and more suited to some tasks in the kitchen.
 
Im still on the fence and have been looking around a bit more.....like razors sometimes the eye is drawn to the beauty then the price tag.....lol.

What the best source to buy from?


Depends. First you need to decide on what type of knife, then shop around...

chefknivestogo.com
cutleryandmore.com
Amazon.com

Those are a few. Also, if you have restaurant supply stores in your area, could be worth checking out.

My favorite is the knife dead center in this pic, a Kiyoshi Kato 240, though I could live with only the Tanaka R2 wa next to it
