Thirty-four layers of stainless Damascus cladding surround the high-carbon VG-MAX core of this hardworking, small knife blade.
The beautifully modern, D-shaped, blonde PakkaWood handle encases the full composite tang blade, reducing unwanted rotation and improving grip for right and left-handed chefs alike.
One of the most essential knives in the Western chef's kitchen, Shun's Japanese-made knife features a short, sharp blade for peeling, coring, trimming, and more.
Handcrafted in Japan this kitchen knife is ground and honed to a razor sharp 16-degree edge out of the box. It’s balanced immediately forward of the bolster for increased precision and injury prevention when used in hand.
Santoku, nakiri, boning, slicing, or steak - Shun blades glide through food when used in a back-and-forth or rocking motion that applies some force parallel to what's being cut, letting the edge do the work.
