good thing they stopped using that accursed d handle. lol. i'm a lefty and that's pretty much my problem with some of the shun lines. and at that price, looks about just right.
i'd consider the kiritsuke and the honesuki if they came in lefty flavors.
"See... the problem here is that... my little brother, this morning, got his arm caught in the microwave, and uh... my grandmother dropped acid and she freaked out, and hijacked a school bus full of... penguins, so it's kind of a family crisis... so come back later? Great."

I'm telling you. People are always doing research for these companies, and whether we know it or not, they are listening to us - the REAL know-it-alls!
I like the look of these...actually, I like them a lot.
Maybe one of us is a secret spy for them? The actually don't look bad IMHO. I like the petty the best, nice thine tip for fine work.
Take the Shun logo off them and they may look ok.
San mai? Are these single bevel, faux single bevel knives or double bevel with single bevel knife profiles? I guess they are double bevel. 4.5" honesuki?
is sur la table going to carry them? id like to play with one. probably wouldnt purchase one though.
