However, if you are used to wrestling crocs and poisonous snakes, maybe a street punk doesn't seem like much of a challenge. It helps to have a very large knife...

His reaction to "he's got a knife" if priceless.

My kitchen knives collection is high quality gear but only consists of chefs, slicer, paring, and a cleaver. Of that I'd say I use the chefs knife for at least 90% of all kitchen work. The cleaver I actually regret buying I hardly use it all all, although it has great home defense or zombie apocolypse potential.

So the question is: do any of you own a santoku knife, and if so do you find it's usefulness would warrant an addition if one already has a chefs knife?

In my desperate attempt to internally rationalize the purchase I've got notions like "well I guess I won't have to wash the chefs knife as much during prep if I can just grab another knife good for chopping" etc.
I just bought a Shun Classic 7" santoku. It is a beautifully made knife, excellent reviews and is scary sharp...
