Shun Classic Chinese Chef's Knife DM0712

This is the most popular Shun knife with the cleaver pattern. It is a medium Chinese chef's/vegetable knife, superb for moderate cutting and delicate work. The blade shape works well for cutting, slicing, mincing, and chopping. And the knife feel right in your hands, it has an almost perfect balance and weight. The pakkawood handle is warm and easy to grip even with wet hands and it is dishwasher proof. The only slight thing you have to be aware of is that it doesn’t have an ambidextrous handle, but a D shape one. So make sure to buy the proper one for you. The most astounding thing about this knife is the edge, it is wickedly sharp and the quality of the steel holds it very well. As a final word of caution, if your primary purpose for this knife is to chopping off thick bones, then maybe this shun cleaver would not be the best choice for you.

Shun Stainless Steel Series Chinese Chef's Knife MH0712

This Shun Chinese Chef’s knife is similar to the former one save for the handle. So, all the above applies to this knife too. The handle in this case is made of a one-piece of stainless steel. The shape is asymmetric as in the classic line but with a lightly sanded finish to further improve the grip. Because it is a one-piece knife it is easy to clean, on the downside it could be a little cold to hold. So, why to choose this one instead of the classic pakkawood handle? Well, besides the always subjective matter of personal preferences, this one it is slightly less expensive and if you look below it is heavily discounted at Amazon at the moment of writing this hub.
