Pros: Sharpness, None
Cons: Durability
Chips
I have a utility knife and its already chipped. They are very sharp, but a bit thin to handle an accidental cut on a hard surface. They are better used for sushi or fish but not a T bone steak. Also, family members will ensure a chip gets in there.

Looks nice, but....
These knives look great, and they're very sharp, but eventually the edge will start chipping, even if you absolutely baby them. If you contact Shun, they'll give you some stock response about not using them for chopping, but that's just a bunch of BS. Search on "Shun edge chipping" online and you'll see what I mean. Long story short, your money is best spent elsewhere.

Pros: Design, Construction, Material Quality, Sharpness, Durability, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sharpenability
one of the most useful knive i own
The shun series are the best kitchen knives I have purchased. The santoku is the best/most useful of my kitchen knives. If I could only own 1 kitchen knife, this would be it. I gave away my french chief knife once i got this one. The shun are made with the top quality steel and the knives stay razor sharp, but they can be a bit difficult to sharpen.
