    That appears is if it's for warranty work. They still show their new sharpening service Perfect Edge as the place to send knives that just need sharpening.

    What's the best way to sharpen my knives?
    As of April 1st, 2011, Shun Cutlery is offering the highest quality knife sharpening and restoration services through our partnership with Perfect Edge Sharpening. Prices for sharpening and restoration services have been negotiated at a substantially reduced cost for Shun knife owners.

    I know at least five that bought them to actually use them, not to pay a grand and slice one lemon a week.

    And just like you they bought a knife because of the looks. Degustimus.

    So your intention with this thread was not to lure shun owners out of the dark? :P

    I like the Shun knives. At least they offer lefty versions that are easy to get. I can get them reasonably sharp and they look good so I plan on still using them. I prefer them over my Henckels so that's where I'm at right now. Even when I get the Mori KS, I plan to still use the Shun lefty Santoku for smaller jobs so...

    Oh no, you must sell all of the knives that are not in style! You don't want to be seen as less than a trendsetter, do you?
