Shears are the perfect companion in your kitchen, from cutting twine to bind your roasts, or turkey's legs, to deboning a chicken, or trimming herbs. You'll use your shears in endless ways. The Shun Classic Kitchen Shears are made in the same tradition of all our Shun Classic knives. All knives in our Shun Classic Series feature VG-10 "super steel", which is made of Carbon, Chromium, Cobalt, Manganese, Molybdenum, Silicon, and Vanadium. They all feature our "D" shape Ebony-black PakkaWood handle, specifically designed for premium applications. These specially shaped handles rest perfectly in the curve of the fingers, for a more secure grip. The bolster is ground out more on the right side for proper finger placement, as well as balancing the knives perfectly. Precision blades and handle engineering mean long-lasting use and comfort-no matter how large or small you kitchen prep may be.
