I sent one (I've had mine for years) as a gift. Explained to the recipient (a chef) that it was one of my faves, because it is so versatile. My number one reason to love it -- I can turn an artichoke with this knife in 70 seconds. It's strong enough to deal with the fibrous nature of the beast, and easy to handle as I do it. Also, yeah, it's a great sandwich/utility knife...gets a lot of use in my kitchen, daily, and I have a lot of other knives.

This item is extremely sharp. It’s cuts very well and looks beautiful. Had to make a wider opening in my knife block to accommodate its width. For $99 it should be great.

Price was right. Would buy it again for son in law.
- EenthusiastVerified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars2 years agoGreat sandwich knife
This Shun Ultimate Utility Knife makes a great sandwich knife. It has no point on the blade so it's not for coring tomatoes etc., but it slices bread and sandwiches extremely smoothly.
I did due diligence searching reviews online before purchasing this knife and was informed in reviews and question answers including on this site that the blade height edge to spine was 1.5 inches. Upon receipt, I found the knife blade height is 1.75 inches requiring me to modify my knife block to accommodate it.
