The Shun 8 inch chef’s knife. Blade is a core of SG2 powdered metal that’s hardened to 64-66 Rockwell (compared to the 56-58 Rockwell of most kitchen knives). Then two layers of SUS410-a softer stainless steel that provides strength, flexibility and corrosion protection. Hand wash. Comes with a Lifetime warranty. If it goes dull, send it in and they sharpen it for you. That is really the only draw back as I see it. It’s folded steel so it requires “special” sharpening. Although in the 3 years I have had mine it has yet to become dull.
Cuts through the thickest of meat as if it were butter. Beef, lamb, chicken, buffalo, everything. It’s more like a scalpel then an kitchen knife. Best kitchen tool I own. I picked mine up a Sur La Table in Kirkland WA (took a bunch of cooking classes there) I am told you can get them at Bon home stores too.
