Haha after this:  https://youtu.be/e50gujs4l-I
I thought I’ll try the victorinox, mostly because I could get my hands on one at a local store, and  I’m only out $40.   So far so good.  If I end up not liking it I'll go with the Shun classic.  Thanks for all the help, I know way more about knives than I need to. My bride is rolling her eyes and : "what is wrong with you? you buys trucks and motorcycles on a whim and but hours of research into cutting up an onion?".

Absolutely.  I have a nerd crush on Alton Brown.
She's got a worm in 'er belly? That's disgusting! That's interesting, but very disgusting.

SO, I decided a decent knife and cutting board would be a good Christmas gift for my girls (19 & 21, both in college and living in apartments) since they like to cook. Found the Shun classic on sale for $99 so ordered a couple. showed up with a $30 Shun credit so ordered one for myself. I must admit it is nicer than the Victorinox, now my search is definitely over. thanks again for all the advice.
