Mr Knife Fanatic,

How do you like the Shun Honesuki?

Fine by me! It's the only Honesuki I've tried to date, but it did well for me. The steel seems like it was tempered well, Fit and Finish is good as always.

The only con I can think of is that it might be considered a little small, so that might be something to take into consideration if you work a pro kitchen.

Well I won't be working in a professional kitchen yet because I'm only 14, but I'm going to have an internship at a restaurant called Loteria in Westlake.

NOVA <> Have fun.

I'll pray for you that you hate it, and it will be set clear in your mind THAT YOU NEVER WANT TO WORK IN FOOD SERVICE. I'm 23 years deep, and would only recommend it to an enemy.

I hope there is a bit of sarcasm in your response... Some people really fit in quite well in the kitchen...

As for the Shun Blue... It is much smaller that a traditional honesuki and it ground with a 50/50 edge which is good for righties and lefties... As for a honesuki over a traditional boning knife... This one I find is completely up to preference... I like the honesuki because I like to be different and I like the pointy edge compared to the traditionally curved boning knife... In the end.. you got to make your own preferences..

Not even a shred.

I mean to each their own, but I would never tell someone I care about to enter a field that offers menial pay, predominately poor working environments, no weekends off, no nights off, no holidays off, 15 hour shifts, and I could go on adnausiem but I won't waste the time. Kids watch that damn TV thing, and think its a glamorous life as a Chef... :lol:

Don't misunderstand... I am a Chef. I started as a busboy 23 years ago, and I have ascended the ladder to Executive Chef amid said time. I have made an extremely successful life for myself, I am extremely good at what I do, I have worked across the world, but the undeniable inarguable truth is... this business sucks.

I acknowledge you are a young man in culinary school. Although you may not heed my wisdom, it behooves you to hear it. I can really get passionate about this conversation, as I have here before, but I already feel the anger flooding my capillaries with blood boiling... my face is burning red.. so I will stop.

My cousin has been a chef for 20yrs and as he says it is definitely a love/hate relationship.
