    Anyone tried or used this before?

    It is a Shun Classic 7" Rocking knife

    I personally don't like it AT ALL

    Feels really weird in the hand and definitely steering issues with being left handed

    It is the Sous Chefs knife a girl and I just feel as if it is made for smaller hands or a girl (nothing wrong with that at all just stating my opinion if she likes it great but not for me)who is on vacation and is the best knife to use at the moment as the rest are complete crap.

    You know what I hate the most when your trying to cut a tomato and the knife can't even puncture the skin...and of course that happens when a hundred orders are thrown at you.



    Thought you could upload a picture right from a post? I have one at work a crappy cell phone pic but is there a way to upload it without using something like imgur or photobucket

    Different strokes for different folks...

    Try using a serrated bread knife to cut tomatoes.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    Never used one but I bet it'd look really sweet with an bright orange "Gusto" handle
    Available handles- http://s64.photobucket.com/user/mkri...able%20handles

    Rule #1- Don't sweat the small s%&t, rule #2- It's ALL small s%&t

    I think you can only upload pics directly if you're a paying member, otherwise you have to link them.

    Unless you're chopping up herbs all day, I can't see how someone would like that design. But whatever floats your boat. It's the ultimate rock-chopper with no slicing function.

    Agreed whatever floats your boat? but I don't know who else this would appeal to besides people with really small hands that blade is so short and just feels totally awkward in the hand and who would pay 150-200 beans for this thing get LOST

    cutting herbs? of you rock herbs the outer sides of each bit becomes darker and cooked. well, if the blade is razor sharp maybe not but rocking on the boards kill the razor sharp edge pretty fast anyways.

    make me think the belly could be useful to skin big animals or fishes, cutting soft things with no contact with the board

    "dull is dull, no matter the knife" is the truth

    ugly knife :s
