Cut in Line

Remember when you were a kid, and people said that cutting was a bad thing? Well, fortunately that rule doesn't apply to the kitchen! You can carve, chip, or chop till you're content, and we've got the knives and cutting boards to make it happen.

The sharpest shoppers on woot should gather here to review and assess this assortment!

I'm just hanging out, really.

Shun Pro Deba knife was $74.99 on Overstock.Com. I plugged the model number from Woot into Google and came up with this:

And the other pro knife was also cheaper on Overstock:

The yanagiba is out of stock there.

It's a good price for the knife. If I made sashimi more often I'd be tempted. I guess I'm tempted now, but I wouldn't use it enough to make it worth buying.

Wow! I bought 2 of the Shun knives a couple of months ago and I love the. I have only the best knives in my kitchen and these Shun are better than any.

Prices of these Shun sets offered here are about $5-$10 lower than of the last time I saw them on Woot. I was in Japan last month, Damacus-steel cutlery over there is pricier than those "made-in-Japan" cutlery you see here.

Yeah, so so prices. I bought a three piece with the Deba and 2 Yanagiba for only $130. And that was over 2 years ago. Not sure why they still have some of the Debas left over.

I bought the Shun DMS286 2 piece knife set last month. The Shun DM0722 Classic 6-Inch Serrated Utility Knife that was suppose to be included was actually the Shun DM0701 Classic 6 Inch Utility Knife (not serrated). I'm under the impression this is frequent mixup for Woot/Shun. I almost returned it but decided against it. The DM0701 is a great knife and has amazing reviews on Amazon. YMMV but something to keep in mind.

Just got the sunflower cutting board.It looks nice enough to use as a serving tray.The shape is pretty attractive and the groove will be handy when carving beast or wet plant material.

The longest yanagiba in that set is two-and-a-half inches shorter than this one. The idea is to make smooth single strokes to slice the fish, and it would have to be a very skinny fish for that six-incher to do it.

Maybe, but my point was more that the Deba is 115 right now and for 130 I got the same knife and 2 yanagiba. Never had an occasion where the 8.5 inch wasnt enough

Bamboo cutting board fell apart perhaps my worst woot purchase.
