About this item
- Make sure this fits by entering your model number.
- Shun's premium Classic Blonde Santoku Knife features our signature VG-MAX high carbon steel and layered Damascus cladding – a functional feast for the eyes of any chef.
- The beautifully modern, D-shaped, blonde PakkaWood handle encases the full composite tang blade for balance, reducing unwanted rotation and improving grip for right and left-handed chefs alike.
- A multi-purpose knife for virtually every cutting task in the kitchen, our Classic Blonde Santoku's 7-inch length and lightweight design make it an excellent chef's knife for small or crowded spaces.
- 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 like most Shun knives for superior handling.
- 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.

From the manufacturer
“Shun” (shoon) is a concept at the very heart of Japanese cuisine. In Japanese, shun is the word used to describe local, seasonal food when it is at the peak of its flavor and freshness—at the peak of its perfection.
Shun Cutlery is known for its exquisite beauty and ultra-premium performance. Yet as beautiful as Shun is on the outside, and as beautifully as it performs in your kitchen, its true beauty may be in what you don’t see.
Handcrafted in Japan
Shun is dedicated to maintaining this ancient tradition by continuing to handcraft each knife in our Seki City facilities. Each piece of this fine kitchen cutlery takes at least 100 individual steps to complete. While we maintain these ancient traditions of handcrafted quality, we also take advantage of thoroughly modern, premium materials and state-of-the-art technology to provide that traditional quality to millions of professional chefs and avid home cooks throughout the world.
Knife Steel is Essential
Heat treatment—an invisible, yet vital, process. This exacting process is fundamentally important to ensuring that your Shun provides lasting value. In heat treatment, the metal is heated and cooled to change its microstructure, bringing out its very best properties. With precise heat treatment, blade steel becomes finer grained, making it stronger and harder so blades can be thinner, sharper, and give you a longer-lasting edge. Shun’s experts are, quite simply, masters of the heat treatment process.
Quality and Performance
Shun is the exact moment when a fruit has reached its ideal ripeness, when a vegetable is at its very best, or when meat is at its most flavorful. Home cooks and professional chefs alike celebrate shun in their kitchens, eagerly awaiting each season’s bounty and serving every ingredient in its proper time.
Shun Cutlery proudly takes its name from this Japanese culinary tradition of eating the freshest food at the perfect moment. We took this name to honor this seasonal, mindful way of eating and as a mark of our dedication to making kitchen cutlery that is always at the peak of its perfection, too.

Shun Classic Blonde
The new Shun Classic Blonde series features our 69-layer Damascus-clad blades and PakkaWood handles in a light and beautiful natural wood tone. From their high-performance VG-MAX cutting core, to the exquisite flowing pattern of the Damascus cladding, to their polished end caps, these remarkable, handcrafted knives offer the same premium performance and materials as original Shun Classics. They are ultra-sharp, durable, beautifully balanced, and simply magnificent to behold. Our initial offering includes five of the most-wanted culinary blade shapes.
Light, Natural Pakkawood Handle
These traditional Japanese-style handles have a slight ridge on the right side, which fits into the curl of the fingers for a comfortable and secure grip. Viewed end-on, the shape resembles the capital letter "D". Pakkawood is waterproof, incredibly durable, and won't harbor bacteria.
Flawless Cutting Ability
Compare with similar items
The name of Shun's Classic Blonde Santoku Knife means "three virtues" in Japanese. This refers either to the three types of foods it works especially well with – vegetables, proteins, and fruit, or the three types of cuts at which it excels: slicing, dicing, and chopping. Slightly shorter than the standard chef's knife, a Santoku is very easy to maneuver, especially in a smaller space. There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which enhances the knife's versatility. Meat, fish, or vegetables, the refined and accurate cuts enabled by Shun knives may lead to some of the best cooking (and eating) experiences you and your guests will ever have. Crafted from our proprietary VG-MAX cutting steel with Damascus cladding that resists corrosion and holds an edge. As with all Shun cutlery, you receive free sharpening for life at our office in Tualatin, Oregon – see packaging for more details. Hand wash only.
