    I believe Jon of JKI got to see a few of those very early on. I'm sure they are like any of the other "special" shun: very good F&F, materials, etc. Showy aesthetic / design and a premium price.
    IMO, it looks cool and I'm excited to see stainless clad carbon steel go "mainstream," but I really hate it when mfg's put that fake sandblasted kasumi finish on a their knives.

    I think they're trying to appeal to folks like us. They seem legit, but sorry Shun, I'm sticking to my tried and true vedors.

    My thoughts exactly. Shuns just don't have the same mystique.

    I've sharpened one for one of my cooks. Hefty knife. Didn't uncover any grind issues and it took a great edge. f&f very good but aesthetically unappealing to me. Felt like an fj cruiser or a new dodge charger. Recognizable as the same make but the proportions and organic feel just off a bit for me.

    DId it feel like any other blue steel on the stones? i really havent enjoyed sharpening my friends sg2 and vg10 shuns, and im not sure whether or not to blame the experience on the steel or the shun heat treat.

    I've never had a good experience sharpening my buddies Shuns. They feel 'greasy' on the stones...

    The line of knives comes from Chris Cosentino, who's been endorsing Shun's for awhile now. They make a Honuseki and a Hankotsu (which they just call a utility/butchery knife). But seriously, *** is this?

    Maybe I'm nieve but as a professional cook, what in god's name am I supposed to do with it? And for $313.
