Shun is a brand that my chef teacher used when I was taking a course at the AI (The Art Institute of Seattle). I bought this Chinese Cleaver when it was on sale on Amazon for around $90 with tax, a little less than $100. It is very light and sharpest knife that I own. It is very sharp right out of the box, so be careful! I’ve had couple incidents where let’s just say good thing that I have long finger nails. I had fear to purchase this all metal cleaver without the traditional handle, that it might be slippery with water or grease, however, i had no problem with it. It is very ergonomically designed.
I like it so much, that I bought this Alton Brown Shun Steel Angled 6-Inch Utility Knife It is the best prep knife that I’ve got. The tilted angle make cutting vegetable so much easier and so effortless. It really is a must have in the kitchen.
