I just wanted to let everyone know about an amazing deal on the Stainless handled Shun bread knife at Amazon.com.
Right now, the steel version is priced at $51.98!
Those of you who've priced this will note that it's almost never seen under $100 from any reputable vendor. Another tip- if you sign up for the trial of Amazon Prime at checkout you get 2 day shipping free! You can cancel this service within one month and pay nothing, otherwise it's $79 a year. Although I will say, if you shop there a lot it's a good deal.
I ordered mine on Mon or Tues and got it today!
At the price I was a little worried that it might end up being left handed or something, but it was a NIB righty! It was left on my side porch so it's still too cold to touch right now, but once it reaches room temp I'll give it a try!
I would have preferred the normal Classic with the Pakkawood handle but for the price the stainless is a great deal. Despite being steel and a little slicker than the wood one the shape is identical and very comfortable to hold. A great bargain to be sure.
