Shun Classic knives are made in Seki City Japan, where craftsmen have made samurai swords for centuries. This 10-inch chef's knife is large enough to handle big kitchen jobs like breaking down poultry and splitting hard squash, but it is balanced enough to use for more delicate tasks too.
The blades of Shun Classic knives are made from VG-10 steel, a durable alloy that has superb edge-holding properties. Sixteen additional layers of alloy are applied to each blade to create a beautiful Damascus look, without the danger of rust that can occur with traditional Damascus blades. The shape of the blades is designed to reduce sticking, resulting faster, safer cutting performance. A once-piece tang runs from a traditional offset bolster to a steel end-cap, and the dishwasher-safe Pakkawood handle has a D-shaped profile that fits the hand beautifully. Every knife in the Shun Classic line is covered by a lifetime warranty.
Born of the ancient samurai-sword-making tradition and hand-finished for precision and beauty, Shun Classic is an ideal choice for anyone buying their first Japanese knife or 50th. The high-quality line of cutlery makes a worthwhile addition to any chef's arsenal of tools--it's used by professional chefs and home cooks alike. Produced in the widest variety of specialized styles, the Classic line features both traditional European blade shapes and innovative cutting-edge designs.
Shun Classic's amazingly sharp blade is famous for both edge retention and ease of sharpening. Each blade has a core of VG-10 "Super Steel" with a Pattern Damascus cladding of 32 layers of high-carbon stainless steel--16 layers on either side. While the wood grain pattern enhances the knife's beauty, it also adds durability and stain resistance, and reduces friction when cutting.
|Blade Material:||VG-10 hardened Japanese steel cutting core, clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side, for a total of 33 layers of metal.|
|Cutting angle:||16 degrees per side (comprehensive angle 32 degrees). This is sharper than European knives, ground to 20-22 degrees per side.|
|Handle Material:||PakkaWood (resin-impregnated hardwood); D-Shaped handle available in right and (by special order) left-handed versions.|
|Sharpening recommendations:||Weekly honing to maintain the blade, sharpening as needed with professional sharpener or Asian-style electric sharpener.|
