On the other hand, I've been using a Shun 18cm gyuto for the last few weeks, and it's been every bit as useful as my 8" Wusthof, even though I'd like something bigger.
When I first looked at this post, I thought who on earth makes this kind of purchase of knives blind, then I looked again that the I.D. and realized, oh, I know who.
