    Personally I've never been clear on what function they serve.
    Tourneing potatoes for an example.

    what exactly can a knife that isn't shaped like a birds beak do that other ones cant? I used to own the shun one and pretty much thought it was useless since I could do everything with the regular parer. Maybe that box with a ball inside thing? ->

    Wow that was really cool. Puts my tournes,fluting mushrooms and my mushroom radishes to shame. I will try that.

    I have a shun, I enjoy using it for cutting/eating fruit by hand. PIA to sharpen.

    what I was thinking. you can also use it for garnish, but making 100 of these would be very time consuming.

    I like that potato ball video...never seen that guy before but he is very funny and personable. I'll check out some of his other vids now.
