Just ordered my first Shun. 6" Sora Utility. Wanted another Cutco, but the closest they came to what I was looking for is a trimmer with an edge I don't care for. Good sale & free shipping at Shun, as well.

I have a nice set of Shun knives and love them. It's worth remembering that they offer a free re-sharpening service at their American HQ should the need ever arise.

Thanks for that tip.
Once I saw they were in with Kershaw (am a Ken Onion fan - carry his pocket knives) and Kai scissors (which make great gifts for folks who don't know about how good a pair can be) I figured I could not go wrong. I want steak knives for Xmas and am looking forward to seeing if they should be Cutco or Shun.

Edit: After a week with the Shun, it will be Cutco for me from now forward. The Cutco blades are simply more substantial and feel like a 'real' knife in the hand to me. Obviously, YMMV.

Edit 2: After another week I'm more pleased with the Shun. Its light weight is quite handy as a paring knife, if a bit long. The thin blade does a good job slicing mushrooms and other smaller pieces like dicing Roma tomatoes for our omelette, etc. So, it does have its place. Will stick with Cutco for the steak knives.

Edit 3: Handle on our ancient cheapo bread knife broke. Found a Henckels on sale with free 2-day delivery so went for it. Very nice. Been doing a fair bit of bread baking during these times of 'staying safe', and the Henckels does an excellent job. Highly recommended.
