Shun vs. MAC Knife Test

For my birthday, my parents gifted me with a new chef's knife. Unfortunately, the kitchen stores where they live were woefully lacking, so my (very practical) Dad instructed me to order the two I was most interested in off the internet and send the one I don't like back. I now have a MAC Mighty Chef 8.5" and a Shun Classic 8" Chef knife sitting in my kitchen and I love them both! I cut the heck out of an apple and a bunch of mint but I think need a more serious test to make my decision. I was thinking about undertaking a project that requires alot of chopping, like spring rolls. Ideas?
