The 7" SHUN Santoku is just the right heft and size for most kitchen jobs. I'm personally surprised that a knife this large feels so right in the hand, has the balance, spine and accuracy to do most all sous prep better than the chef's knife it has replaced. My wife and I serious home cooks, so I ordered a 5.5" santoku for her much smaller hands. It just doesn't have the same utility as the 7" knife, and she's gravitated towards the 7" exclusely.

This is an excellent santoku. Im so glad I bought this size. It fits perfectly in my hand and makes those fine cuts and dicing much easier.

I bought this knife for my teenage daughter, who is beginning to enjoy the art of cooking and baking. She had used an inferior Santoku knife but noted how much she liked the feel, weight and the utilitarian nature of that knife. So, I knew I needed to get her a high quality, well crafted Santoku and decided on the Shun classic line to start her set. She loves it!!!

I love this Shun Santorum knife. It is sharp.well-balanced, useful for alll larger slicing/cutting jobs. I also purchased the Shun Classic boning knife, and the Kai knife sharpener ( the manual one that slides out from its case). All products are GREAT !
