Gunting. Opens smooth and locks solid with a small rotation of the wrist. (Also nothing comparable when the kinetic ramp is employed.) Original Tim Zowada opened Parkay smooth and you can't tell that apart from the buttery standard...... ;)

Think thinner. Santokus have thicker blades and can cut through small bones easily. They ha...
