$160 here (http://www.surlatable.com/product/PRO-184891/Miyabi-Kaizen-Chefs-Knives), so...yeah? About the same as getting it from SLT with an employee discount.

I bought this knife (7-inch) for the exact same price, except it also came with a crappy cutting board:

Your's seems like a better deal, but knowing what I know now I would put my money towards a custom job...

I do like the Myabi Birchwood series, as far as production knives go. My SLT is out of them though.

Atleast that little shun has a better profile than the regular models.

The Miyabi VG10 is >>>>>> than the Shun variant.

Not bad, although I hate the handles on the kaizen knives. I do like the miyabi fusions though.

The Kaizen came out at that price, so I think it's as low as they can go.
Nice knives....
That Shun of yours looks good too, actually.

That Shun's profile looks FAR better then my 8".

Thanks for the tip off Dave,

NO ChoP!

I bought several of those Miyabis as Xmas gifts, at the same price point. Nice steel. Comfortable handle. Not much taper; can seem a touch thick at the tip....
