How can I convince my wife to let me spend $192 for 4 steak knives? Yes, we love Shun, and yes we have several Shun knives, including 6.5" Nakiri Knife, 8" Classic Chef's Knife, 7" Cleaver, 4" paring knife, as well as Shun Whetstone and honing steel, but to spend $192 on 4 steak knives is still a bit steep even though it is on sale.
My experience with Shun is that their free sharpening service is not that good on the normal blades. I don't know how they would do on these. I have a bunch of Shuns which I sharpen with a Edge Pro Apex. I have a few of these steak knife type bladed Shuns and they are hard to sharpen. So it something to consider when getting these type of blades.
Don't know if Shun still does this but in the past I have bought beat up Shun knives on craigslist and sent them back to Shun for reconditioning. They have always sent new knives as replacements.
damn knife fetish... I honestly do not like those (handle will not even get close to match any other silverware, odd style to sharpen, not a fan of faux damascus steel) but if that rows your boat, the price is good! not perfect, but good repped!
note: they replaced the reusable bamboo box for a disposable styrofoam one
Name of the site is slickdeals, not cheapdeals. Its all about amount of money saved on something you might have paid full price on. Thats what i use it for anyway, not $1 free credits
I personally do not understand that person's mentality; the idea that slickdeals should only be about clearances at kmart, biglots, tj max, kohls, marshals, walmart, walgreens, and cvs would be terrible. While these stores do have plenty to offer, there are just quite a few more places I like to shop - where the items are higher quality - and I am certainly not in the income bracket where people eat caviar from hand-blown crystal every night.
200 dollars for 4 knives is insanity. People who buy this thing actually use it or put in a showcase? A decent knife and sharpening stones dies the work me for the last 10 years.
Shun are definitely overpriced, but they have made a name for themselves and people pay it. Sure you can do research and find better quality for less than Shun asks, but not everyone is interested in doing that. Further the finish on these knives is quite awesome; they are beautiful to look at.
