The idea of cutting a fine steak with the knife provided by most restaurants, even very classy ones, is nearly enough to keep me from ordering a steak. A perfect solution to this problem is the Shun Gentleman's Personal Knife. They have taken a 150-year-old design, added a liner style lock to make it safer and a blade of VG-10 with a razor edge, to create a very fine, and easily carried personal steak knife. The 3-1/2" blade is VG-10 at 60-62 Rc. Measures 4-1/4" closed and weighs a mere 1.4 oz. The handle scales are deep black ebony pakkawood over stainless liners. Made in Japan.
