Has anyone used the Shun Kaji knives and can comment on the quality of the steel in use?

I have both their super utility knife and the 210 gyuto. The steel is SG2 powdered stainless Damascus and the knives are well made.
Quality of the steel? Generically speaking this is one of the higher end newer steels held in high regard. But of course each knife and maker may have some what different traits due to heat treat etc.

I have had mine for years now and no issues, but wasnt the easiest for me to sharpen until i got some decent stones that worked well with that steel. Miyabi has a similar SG2 line and you may want to compare them as you may like one lines handles better than the other.
