I see so many shuns being used in professional kitchens. I would say 90% of them are dull, chipped, missing their tips, neglected, and people still think they are just plain awesome. I definitely do not agree, and I think shuns are terrible. But that is my personal opinion and I believe if you feel like you have found something that you truly like in a shun or anything else you should just continue to enjoy it and screw whatever anyone else thinks or says.
I would never buy a shun though. That is my advice. They are like a western gimmick of a japanese knife and most people who use german knives don't realize that it takes so much more effort to care for a japanese knife. So what happens in the end is they are chipped/damaged and people think that the knife is to blame.
I'm fairly certain that if I bought a shun and took care of it, the knife would always be sharp and in great condition. That still does not mean that I would enjoy using their terrible shapes and designs and faux damascus crap.
Oh I forgot to mention, I have a shun in my knife roll right now. Its a bread knife and its a loaf in itself.
