I wonder how the Shun Blue Honesuki is? It is not that expensive and comes with a saya
Regardless of what some "purists" might say, the truth is knives from the Fuji line are excellent pieces of cutlery. While they don't have the mystique of handmade knives from the more popular makers on this forum, they are still very well made with top-notch fit and finish, comfortable handles, good geometry, and good steel.
They may be nice but 1600 for the set is overpriced. You only get a 210 gyuto, a 240 suji, a serrated petty, a honesuki and a pairer. I just hope the deal was significant as the retail price is ridiculous.

i think shun sg2 steel is very good for stainless, with the correct stones it sharpens up pretty nice and has good edge retention. and the fuji line has a better profile than the other shuns ive seen.
Well the entire set cost me approximately a grand. So 600 off retail. Seemed like a good deal? Haven't even had a chance to prepare a proper meal with them, but looking forward to it.
BTW, any recomendations on proper care for them? How should I wash them after use? Should I apply anything to the blade or handle? Thanks in advance
I can not believe I am saying this but I think I might have to buy one
