But I think that a chef’s knife for $35 to $40 is a steal, and you probably will only need a chef’s knife for 90% of your kitchen task. So my recommendation is to buy a chef’s knife only.
Yarenh will probably put the price up after I upload this video, so my recommendation is to look for a different reseller that sells the exact same knife but then with a different logo (make sure to read the description). So if you do find a chef’s knife for $35 or $40, I recommend that you buy it.
Personally, I would not go over $80 for a knife made in China since you can buy a Santoku knife from Shun for around $100 to $125 in Japan. The only reason why the Shun is extremely expensive in Europe or America is import taxes and marketing; you will pay for the same knife that would cost around $100 in Japan $200+ in Europe or America.
This is an EDC gear review of the Wuben Gecko E61 Rechargeable EDC Penlight. I was sent this light by Wuben for review. I received no compensation for this review and only received the penlight for free. This penlight exceeded my expectations and seems to be very high quality. I am adding it to my personal EDC rotation and would recommend it. I do have a few issues with it that I address in the video. I strive to give honest reviews from the perspective of an average gun owner and EDC user. I hope this review is useful for someone looking for gear like this.

This is a video where I show off the Shun Premier 8″ Chef’s Knife and explain its features.
Essentially, the Shun Premier is the “flagship” Shun line. It uses VG-MAX Steel (~61 Hardness) sharpened to a 16 degree angle. On top of that, it has 34 layers of steel folded on itself, giving it a beautiful damascus design. Finally, the upper 1/2 or so of the blade is hammered. The end result is a knife that truly is “premier.”
It’s a very quick video of the knife, just to give you an idea of what it looks like and what it is all about. Check out the video and let me know if you have any other questions.
NOTE: I’ll be making quick videos showing all of the different knives and comparing the various lines of Shun to not only other brands, but each other as well!
