shun classic vs. stainless?
Hi- though my other (good) knives are wusthofs I've decided to register for a shun santoku knife as one of my splurge items. since it's a splurge I thought i'd go flashy with the stainless but i'm wondering if there's any reason why they aren't so popular? shoud I stick with the classic? is this just asthetic?
I have a shun stainless santoku and its fine. Once you start using it you'll forget what kind of material the handle is made of. Keep in mind, the handle is sort of d-shaped for a better grip, and that if you're left handed, this could be a problem. Otherwise, there's not much difference.
