|vandal570||Haha, like I said just my experience. If you have a quality sharpener it wont be an issue.|

Just kidding. Please don't chew my ass off.

|vandal570||Its not silly at all. Its a $6 knife and works about as well as you could expect for a $6 knife. Rather than insinuate you could ask a question such as do you use a cutting board? Yes We have used it in the same fashion. Primarily veggies but some chicken and beef as well and yes the edge is about as sharp as a butter knife at this point in time, not sure what is so difficult to understand about that, nor why you would think I would have any reason to make up something of the sort like I have some sort of gain from it. Thats awesome your results are different, wish ours were. The things was as sharp as a razor blade when I opened the package and now its not. Its as simple as that. I recently picked up KME sharpening system so its not a big deal, ill get an edge on it. BTW KAI is a division of Shun.|

I have the 6.5" pink knife that has been on sale lately and after a month the blade is about as sharp as a butter knife. It was only $6 but ive gotten better knives at the flea market.

I’m not sure if the coating truly contains BPA or if someone simply pulled such statements out of their butt and propagated them due to ignorance. I would like to see an official source stating that the coating contains BPA and why it's used on the knife. BPA is use in making a certain type of plastic, not to make things non-stick. However, since the coating is for non-stick purposes, the coating would, consequently, be a Teflon coating, similar to the coating on non-stick pans. Shun states that their Komachi 2 knives “are made of high-carbon stainless steel with a food-safe, FDA-approved resin coating. This non-stick coating (similar to Teflon®) provides the eye-catching color, resists corrosion, makes cleaning simple, and helps the knife glide through food with ease.” That being said, a chemical in Teflon, PFOA, is being banned in the US and in many other countries. PFOA is showing up in trace amount in everyone’s blood and in the environment. PFOA has been linked to cancer and birth defects in animal studies. Like BPA, PFOA is a serious concern to public health and the environment. I would assume that the Komachi knife coating contains PFOA, just like the non-stick pan you used to fry your eggs this morning or your pork chops last night. If the Komachi knives truly contains BPA, then I would assume that it’s in the plastic handles and probably not the steel blades. But then again, I may have simply pulled this out of my butt for others to propagate.

|mrjrmy||I keep getting redirected to the slickdeals homepage. Is this dead?|

|GeorgyG||Can we get a clarification on this BPA topic, I think that worries me more than the sharpening.|
