Product Description

Amazon.com

Made from VG-10 stainless steel, Shun knives are specially constructed to be harder, less brittle, but also more flexible than traditional steel formulations. The VG-10 core is clad with 16 full layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side, for a total of 33 layers. These layers not only protect the VG-10, they create an exquisitely-detailed surface reminiscent of Damascus or pattern-forged steel, the kind once used for Samurai swords. As a result, the knives are simply stunning to look at--much like antique Damascus knives but without their tendency to rust. As an additional benefit, the slight patterning helps slice rather than crush delicate foods and keeps cut food from sticking to the blade.

The 6-inch blade of this Shun utility knife features a serrated edge, which makes it ideal for slicing through ripe, summer tomatoes. Like many Asian-style knives, the knife's handle is especially suited to smaller users. In contrast to the traditional round profile, however, Shun's are D-shaped to prevent the knife from twisting in the hand, providing extra stability and a firm grip. The handle is made from ebony-colored PakkaWood, a fused blend of hardwood veneers imbued with waterproof resin that combines the warmth and traditional look and feel of wood with the strength and durability of plastic. The offset stainless-steel bolster is designed for ergonomic comfort and maximum safety, while a stainless-steel end cap provides the finishing touch. As sturdy as it is lovely, the utility knife is officially safe to put in the dishwasher--although it's so good-looking you might find yourself hard-pressed to do so. Shun knives carry a limited lifetime warranty. --Mary Park

Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Shun Classic Cutlery

Why Buy Shun Classic:

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.

NSF certified for use in commercial kitchens.

Detailed Features

  • Blade core consists of high-carbon VG-10, a Japanese super steel known for its edge retention, allowing the knives to hold their sharp edges for years.
  • Blades boast a 16-degree angle, making these the sharpest knives out of the box. This is sharper than traditional European blades, which are usually sharpened to 20-22 degrees.
  • Clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side for strength and flexibility. This metal is corrosion-resistant and easy to maintain.
  • Damascus styling adds to the beauty of the knife while the microscopic air pockets created by the cladding process reduces friction during slicing.
  • D-shaped handle fits in the palm and provides comfort and control, keeping the knife's handle secure in the hand during use.
  • Available standard in D-shaped handle styles or by special order in reverse D-shaped handle styles.
  • Pakkawood handles, made of resin-impregnated hardwood, are NSF Certified for use in commercial kitchens.
  • Produced in Seki City, Japan, the capital of samurai sword manufacturing.
  • Rockwell hardness rating of 60-61 ensures that it takes and holds its incredibly sharp edge longer.
  • Hand wash and dry recommended; limited lifetime warranty.

The knives are EXTREMELY sharp.
NuJoi
Though somewhat light in overall weight, the "D" shape handle design (I'm right handed) and blade sharpness have proven exceptional.
J. Ludwick
Very nice to be use with fruits, vegetables and to cut sandwiches as well.

Update 9/10/07: Before purchasing this knife separately, check out the Shun Classic U2 (Ultimate Utility) Knife. You may like it better.

I believe if you're serious about cooking, you should own great cookware and excellent knives. I finally stepped up and got excellent knives. For those who haven't heard the hype, Shun is one of the most respected knife brands in the world. Check them out on the Web at kershawknives.com.

Great features of the entire line include these cool "D" shaped handles that fit your hand better. Every Shun Classic knife is made in a right- and left-handed version (chefsresource.com for lefties). The steel used for the blades is harder than what you would find in most other knives. The knives are EXTREMELY sharp. One thing to note about Asian knives is that they must be sharpened at a different angle, 16-18 degrees vs. 20 degrees for German knives. The Shun steel takes the guesswork out of getting the angle correct because of the flat edge on one side of the metal disc below the handle.

Tomato knife -- I didn't eat tomatoes for a week while I was waiting on this knife to arrive. I'm glad I waited. I used to cut tomatoes with a steak knife and this is so much better!
I think this knife is the utility knife with scallops. I don't have enough knife smarts to know the difference between serrations and scallops, but I do know I love this knife. In Alton Brown's "Gear" book, he prefers scallops, but didn't say why.

This is an expensive, but lifetime investment. I encourage you to visit stores and feel the knives in your hand to make sure you are comfortable with them. For more info on Shun, check out Alton Brown's website. For ratings on various brands and types of knives, check out cooksillustrated.coms' equipment ratings.

This is probably the best kitchen purchase I've made and the one I'm most proud of.

I bought this knife in January 2005, after lusting for one of the beautiful Shun knives for a long time. I was a little concerned about the D-shaped profile of the handle, because I'm left-handed, but have not had any problem with it. The edges are rounded and the difference between the flat side and the rounded one is not an intrusive sensation. That said, I'm not convinced there's any significant advantage to this shape, either.

I selected the tomato knife because it seemed like it would fill an unoccupied niche in our rather large collection of kitchen knives. This is a versatile knife that shouldn't be limited by its name - not only does it handle the ripest tomatoes well, but it's handy for cutting other soft, juicy fruits and vegetables or any other use for which a serrated blade is needed, and the size of the blade makes it an excellent utility knife. My husband and I use it regularly, and we both love it.

These Shun knives are sharp, they are very sharp.

Most of my cutlery set is made up of various Wusthof knives, I simply prefer the weight and heft of Wusthof with my most commonly 'used' knives. I decided to try something new and went with a 6 inch Shun Tomato Knife and was very please with my purchase. Though somewhat light in overall weight, the "D" shape handle design (I'm right handed) and blade sharpness have proven exceptional.

This knife is perfect. It is not too long and not too short. I use it for cutting bread, slicing veggies and fruits. I carved up a pineapple the other day and this knife works beautifully. Don't fall for those big block set. Just buy the knife that you need and that you like. They don't need to match. I have a Miyabi 8" chef knife, a Shun paring knife, Wusthof santoku and Henckels bread knife. I am keeping an eye out for sales on a Shun or Miyabi santoku. Amazon and Sur La Table both have great deals on these knives once in a while. I bought this one for $70 on a Lightning deal.

This is by far the best knife I have ever purchased, and in the future I will be buying Japanese knives over the german steel. The sharpness has to be experienced to be believed, as it goes beyond any other knife I have used, including supposedly high quality Henckels knife (made in Germany). I believe that a significant reason is the softer steel layer in the centre which provides the cutting edge. You need to dry the blade relatively promptly after use, but really this just means don't leave it lying around wet. The design is also very attractive, it feels good to use, and I love the damascus patterns on the blade.

This knife works great for tomatoes and avocados, but I've actually been using it to cut bagels in the morning. I have the shun bread knife which is the best bread knife I've ever used, but this smaller knife is much easier to use on unwieldy, wobbly bagels.

I love this knife! It's perfect for kitchen usage and fruits and vegetables. I have a lot of Shun knives and they're all amazing. I like the size of this knife as well, the U2 is a good alternative, but it's a bit big for the vegetables. The paring knives are also awesome, but if you need a serrated veg knife I highly recommend this one.
