In Japanese, Sora means "sky." With Sora's proprietary Composite Blade Technology, this beautiful series offers sky-high value by bringing together a VG10 three-layer san mai cutting edge with a polished Japanese 420J stainless steel upper.

This technology puts high-performance material exactly where it's needed most - on the cutting edge.

Product description

Color:Black  |  Size:8 Inch

This is the place to start your Shun Sora collection: The Sora chef's knife. Of course you know it's the essential kitchen knife. But what you might not know is that since the Sora line features traditional Japanese blade and handle shapes, in Japan, the Sora chef's knife would be called a Gyuto. It's used for all the same purposes as a chef's knife—all-around food preparation. But the Sora chef's has less curve than a western chef's knife, which means it contacts the cutting board along more of its length, so more food is cut per slice. The Sora has a gentle roll off the tip compared to the large roll of a western style knife, so the Sora needs to be lifted less, making cutting more efficient. Once you try the Sora chef's knife, you'll wonder what you ever did without it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poorly built
By Matias9c on June 17, 2017
It's sharp, stays like that and at less than 7 Oz. it's really light.
The knife was my first Shun, and I was quite impressed, until I accidentally dropped it. The knife fell from a height of about 3 feet (and as you know, I didn't try to catch it), and came apart.
I really thought that for the price it would be a single piece knife, I was wrong.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great feel and sharp but steel is kind of cheap
By Jeffrey D Varga on October 28, 2019
I am a chef for the past 15 years and I got this knife as an every day kitchen knife so I can make fine knife cuts without bringing my very expensive knives to work. I liked the feel though the handle was a little cheap feeling. I felt like the blade was solid but thin and it seemed a little thin around the tip. After using it most days for simple herb and vegetable cuts, meat cleaning and portioning(not much butchery with bones) and fish fileting it held up and stayed sharp with bi weekly shape ups. When I recently broke down some wheels of semi hard cheese the tip broke. I didn't use the thing for bone or very hard things like pumpkin but apparently it was not strong enough steel to make it through pecorino. Too bad but still worth 60 bucks
