thats not a knife.....THIS is a knife.......

Only 53 Rockwell hardness, easy to sharpen but you'll be doing it every day.

"One of the guys took delivery of the 20cm Sai chefs knife today - its perfectly balanced and tremendously sharp..... seems like a great knife to be fair though he hasnt really put it to any use yet. Paid £79.99 as we dont pay VAT through work " discusscooking.com/
nice knife, pity its only the parer in clearance.
For those who 'don't know what good knives cost'. Here's a few comparable, cheaper brands. Not taking anything away from this price or the quality of 'Sai'.

Don't worry, they'll still cut your frozen pizzas, although these knives are for peeling or paring. oops!
I'd prefer a Henckels (Zwilling) knife any time. Got one in TKmax the other day for £5 (instead of £32). Best knife I ever owned. I've got a Henckels (Zwilling) nail sissors since 1972 and it's still going sharp. That's quality.

Important Note: Most Henckels knifes on ebay are seconds without lifetime warranty but they don't tell you (they hide the seconds mark in the picture).

OK, I have done my best.. Just thought I'd try submitting a deal to contribute to this festival of consumerism which we all find so addictive!

Don't get me wrong, I voted hot on price, but one of the great design attributes of Japanese knives is the layering of an extremely hard steel centre core with softer outer layers for a combination of sharpness and durability. 60 Rockwell hardness is what I would consider good in a knife of this caliber.

This is what I want (and can't justify):

What make is that ? looks lovely, a work of art.
Shun Premier. Under £50 in the US, but over £100 here...

Ah Kai Shun! Yes I REALLY want a set of these, but absolutely no way I can justify the price

That's a knife, nice.
Beautiful knife
Most here wouldn't have a clue what to do with them..Great for cutting there sandwiches in half or frozen pizza, maybe they may even cut an onion in half now and again!
Looks very nice but seems a bit pricey. I just got a set of 13 Japanese knives for £27 down from £79.99, seems a better deal.
