Good price...

For those that are interested in buying this knife might want to read some reviews before purchasing.

The reviews said it's not for meat/bone cutting, I'll pass.

It's funny how the first line of Amazon's discription detail of the knife is "7-inch Chinese chef's knife; suitable for cutting meat and poultry bones" and it's not. Meh.

I got he other cheap Shun Chinese chef's knife with the metal handle. I paid $90 for it couple years ago on Amazon. It's a very sharp and nice knife but I was careless and put a a small notch on the blade while boning the turkey. Send it back to Shun for repair and got it back couple weeks later but it's not sharp as before. Just make sure to slice only vegetables or meat and stay away from the bone. Smilie

For that purpose, just get a cheap $10 Chinese cleaver.

yeah, I'm getting a little tired of Amazon's incorrect descriptions and inflated "list" prices...

I'm not sure why the fact that fine knives are unsuitable for hacking bone deserves mocking.

The average cook rarely needs to hack bone, so it's not exactly a HUGE limitation that will prevent you from using the knife on a regular basis. It's like having to avoiding rocks when mowing the lawn... aka not exactly a big deal Scratchhead

It's labeled "Veg knife" on the actual knife. Amazon normally does such a good job with customer service, the mislabeling is really a disservice.
