Shun - Classic H.G. Chef's 8"
If you have only one kitchen knife, the Shun Classic 8-in. Hollow Ground Chef's Knife is the one to have. In addition to top Shun performance, what make this one special is the hollow-ground indentations on the side of the blade. They create small air pockets that reduce friction when cutting, making it easier to glide through the cut. If you've had problems with sticking, try a hollow-ground blade. Otherwise, use the Shun Classic 8-in. Hollow Ground Chef's Knife as you would any other chef's knife—for slicing and dicing small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods.
