    k.
    My toddler is in my lap(she's almost 2), and when she saw this, she started wagging her finger and saying "NO NO NO. NO NO."

    (first time imputing a video let me know if it works) But I think you'll get the gist.
    If I had a restaurant, I'd buy that just for risotto. I mean, come on. Why wouldn't you.

    Cut an onion with that thing tear free, and you deserve an award. Was that thing never tested?

    if my steak needs a saw i'm going to throw it out and start over.

    i have a rachel ray furi santoku. a few years ago, my girlfriend and i were house sitting/dog watching for somebody, and the kitchen, otherwise very nice and great for cooking in, was outfitted with glass "cutting boards" and incredibly dull knives (go figure). i didn't want to drive all the way home to grab one of my Shuns (what i was using at the time), or risk the GF accidentally using one on said glass cutting boards, so i went out and bought a small bamboo board and the rachel ray santoku (it was the cheapest knife the nearby sur la table had, at a big post-christmas discount). it was incredibly dull out of the packaging, but there was an arkansas stone in the kitchen, which looked like it had never been used, and i was able to put a decent edge on it. even a vaguely sharp knife can make cooking a lot more enjoyable. i use it for partitioning frozen food, now, and it works great for that. it's a perfect wedge. it's really ugly, though, so it lives in a drawer.

    i've always thought the Ken Onion Shuns were godawful ugly, and i can't imagine the ergonomics work all that well.

    Boy Howdy, do I ever agree about the Onion Shuns! They SHOULD be shunned!
