the amount I can use my arm without pain I got one and find it can do
quite a lot of what I was doing with my 10" chef's knife.  Some
things still work better with the long blade and its techniques,
chiffonade for example. >>>

Okay, what kind of knife is a "santoku"? I assume this style comes  
from Japan?

Secondly, what is a "chiffonade"?
