Greetings All, I am in the market for new knives. For various reasons, I have pretty much narrowed my choices down to Wusthof Classic or Shun Classic. My main reservation with the Shuns is that I have not been able to find any to actually hold. Until today. Sort of. There is one place here (in Tallahassee) that sells Shun and I went by there today. They only Classics they had in stock were a large cleaver and a carving fork. The main thing I wanted to see before ordering some knives is how the handle felt in my hand. The handle on the cleaver felt just fine. I liked it better than the handle on the Wusthof Classic that I also hefted while I was there. Q1: Is the handle on that cleaver exactly the same (size and shape) as the handles on the knives? It looked like it based on the pictures I've seen. It had that Shun Classic D shape to it. But, I wanted to confirm that with someone who would know for sure. While I was looking at the Shun and Wusthof, I noticed they also had a selection of Messermeister Asian Precision series knives. I hefted a 7"-ish Gyuto from that line. The handle on that felt just like the Wusthof Classic handle. But, the blade on it seemed very flexible. Almost flimsy. Too flexible for that kind of knife, it seems to me. Q2: Is that flex normal for those (the Mess. Gyuto)? Q3: Is the blade on a comparable Shun Classic (like the 8" Chef's knife) going to be thin and flexy like the Mess.? Or will it be thicker and stiffer, more like the Wusthof Classic Chef's knife? Thanks!
