The BS level is OVER 9000!.....
Shun Edo’s reputation for superior power and control is reflected in the extraordinary appearance of their cutlery. The VG-10 steel blade’s eye-catching hammered pattern reduces drag and helps food release easily, and the handle’s tear-drop shape and broad bolster facilitate a variety of cutting techniques.
The innovative combination of low-frequency and high-frequency serrations serve to improve performance.
Low-frequency to help minimize resistance between blade and cutting board.
High-Frequency to reduce tearing when cutting soft-skinned foods (like tomatoes) or slicing through hard crusts.
Talk about wavy edges! It looks like the edge isn't straight down the line but bends back and forth...I would love to see someone use this thing I guess it is just supposed to be serrated twice? Or like a long scalloped edge plus tight serrations...what a disaster. There is this whole market now for very expensive serrated knives from Shun. Wonder Why? I mean I can guess but seriously what a piece of crap. It will always cut the same crappy way.
Also says they want to reduce tearing? Seriously? That is all this thing does is tear stuff!
That one should be fun to sharpen, boy-howdy!

But it comes with a stand! That's like a twofer.
(Actually, I kind of like the stand, but the knife is aweful)
