i thought shun quality has gone down the drain as far as the warranty,etc. at least that's what I heard so I've been avoiding them. Anyone else have same experience?

absolutely. for the same price, you can get a Miyabi Artisan which is hands down a better knife (comparing shun premier line with Miyabi artisan)

Even miyabi kaizen which is $100 is better knife than shun's premier

The Miyabi does seem to be the one to get, if you're accustomed to or wanting to purchase a Japanese-style knife.

Personally, I prefer a western-style knife and have been extremely satisfied with the Dalstrong Shogun series. Their Santoku and Filet models are my go-to knives.

Knives are a personal choice, so you may want to purchase different styles and models, until you find the ones that fit you.

Miyabi are beautiful but to lightweight for my preference. But it is all about preference and comfort, if you are looking to spend more then $20 on a knife got to a store and pick it up and feel it figure out what you like then go home and wait for a sale and by what you want, being slick goes hand in hand with being patient!

Are both Miyabi Artisan and Kaizen lighter than Shun regular ones? I hate light knives!

This is just called a knife. Not an asian knife.

Actually, it's an Asian-style knife, as opposed to a Western-style knife. The OP titled his post correctly.

I HIGHLY recommend that you ask an experienced cook chef BEFORE you buy this.lifestyles are supposed to have FLAT bellies. You are NOT supposed to rock cut with a ksuke. You should use a push cut or a pull cut ONLY. Rocking puts a tip into the board and a mistake has a delicate tip. Add the fact that vg10/ vgmax is a very delicate steel and you are in for trouble!

TV chefs get a freebie if they break a knife, they have nothing to lose. You have a lot to lose because a warranty covers defects in workmanship or materials, NOT misuse. The average home cook does not have the skill and especially the discipline to use this knife without chipping it or breaking the tip which again is NOT covered by warranty. ONLY BUY THIS KNIFE IF YOU HAVE THE DISCIPLINE TO PUSH CUT AND WILL NOT ROCK YOUR KNIFE.
any more than the average driver can't drift or drive autocross.

If you feel the need to buy a mistake because they look cool (not because they will be functional for your cutting style) i HIGHLY suggest you get a lifestyle with a flat belly or get an foolproof knife like a dalstrong. They target market to, and factor in people without skill into their pricing strategy and will almost always replace even if it is the customers fault. IF you don't have the skill of a working cook and you want a lifestyle with a belly, Castro g is the best choice. If you're an experienced cook, you already know to get a flat belly, so this post doesn't apply to yoy

This knife was made for a very specific market: Japanese master chefs. Unless you are a Japanese master chef or something closely comparable to one, this knife would be wasted on you, just as your currency would be wasted on it.
