My first foray into what some might consider a 'real' knife. Prior to this I was using primarily Shuns which, to the uninitiated like me, always seemed like the best knife. Then I fell down the rabbit hole of Kitchen Knife Forums, read a lot, learned a lot and eventually came out with this Tanaka 165mm Santoku with custom handle from Sharp Knives in Hamilton, ON. To me it's beautiful. Very comfortable, feels nice in the hand, seems to be well balanced, and just nice to look at. I'm waiting for my new cutting board before putting it to use.
