a lifetime gift: a shun knife

I wasn't really expecting anything when Joseph and I had an anniversary this past week, but he surprised me with a gift for us: a Shun knife. This knife is the knife of my dreams (what you don't dream about knives?). I love the wood detail of the handle and the Japanese craftsmanship. This knife will likely last us the rest of our lives.
I can't wait to cook with it — although it's just so darn pretty, I hate to use it.

This is a stunning knife, as much a work of art as a kitchen tool. Terrific gift from Joseph.
