    Well, for $199, you could buy the package, keep the stand and foist the knife on some irritating relative as a Christmas present, right?

    (Actually, I kind of like the stand, but the knife is aweful)

    I am going to go to Williams and Sanoma and ask to test it out. I should tell them I read the description and what to compare it to one of my gyutos because I am so intrigued by the claims. I am all about scientific method. Maybe they'd let me do a cooking demo? I should inquire, what do you guys thinK? I'm ok with making claims if they are proven!

    Whoever designed that should be hacked to death with it.

    But did you read the description, it is designed for smooth cutting with "minimal tearing" ... so according to findings it might be hard to hack someone with it, slice maybe. I'm just saying.

    I was intrigued by the claim that it "minimized resistance between the blade and cutting board". I consider this a good thing as I really hate to push hard while sawing through my board

    That Bread knife is brutal. I don't get it. I don't mind the shun utility knife, but the rest of them are pretty horrible. Kindah hard to see the skill wasted.

    Remember those knives that looked like they where made with pipe handles covered in bright colored plastic? Well, in this case, looks aren't deceiving:


    The "8" Chefs (Thin)" is only $315

    But, sadly it's back ordered. Maybe they'll do a re-handle on my Marko Shige w/ crappy, wood handle.
