For all you Bamboo haters out there, I bring you last week's Shun Ken Onion 7 Piece Bamboo Block Set in Cherry flavor. Otherwise the same, so you can read up on the deal opinions there to help make your decision:

I still can't get the courage myself to bring a set of these home - congrats to those of you without need for spousal purchase approval able to live the knife of luxury.
(or sell them on ebay and distinguish yourself from those lowly bamboo resellers)
