I gave my husband the Shun Chef's Knife for our first anniversary - we love to cook and wanted a "kitchen college education" by upgrading our tools. This knife fits the hand like an old friend, makes every task a pleasure and brings a new level of precision to each dish. We look forward to using it every day!
