Product Description

A Santoku knife (Santoku meaning "three virtues" in Japanese) is used for chopping, slicing and mincing. The Shun Sora Hollow-Ground Santoku knife is perfect for all these tasks and more. Sora, in Japanese, means "sky". Let your imagination take you-the sky's the limit with what you can do with your Shun Sora Knives. Featuring our proprietary composite blade technology that brings together a VG10 cutting edge, clad with one layer of stainless steel on each side to create a san mai edge, with a mirror-polished Japanese 420J stainless steel upper. Boasting a razor-sharp 16-degree cutting angle on each side of the blade, Sora puts all the high-performance technology where it's needed most: the cutting edge. Laser-cut, 2-sections are fit together and braze welded to permanently join them. Blade shapes and handles are designed for traditional Japanese knives, while the beautiful wavy pattern on each blade is reminiscent of Japanese sword hamon lines. The hollow-ground feature makes tiny air pockets which help with food release from the blade. Each handle is made with a textured TPE polymer handle that provides balance, and is easy to maintain. The texture of each handle provides a tacky surface when wet, making them superior to use around juicy fruits, vegetables and meat. A stunning Shun knife at an incredible price point; you can afford to have one in every style!

If this is the low end of the SHUN then I can just imagine what the PREMIER, EDO, and the KEN ONION line can do. These knifes are crazy sharp. I did all of my research on the shun brand and the VG-10 hybrid steel they use to make the blades. The blade is so sharp out of the box that I spend about 2 minutes just cutting random stuff just for fun. I have been making my own knife set and I was trying these knifes out at first and now I decided to make my whole set the Sora line and I have not been let down by them. I have had the other German forged steel knifes and was very disappointed in them. They did not stay sharp long and cosmetically very unpleasant and they did not stay sharp that long. Very pleased with my purchase of these knifes and SHUN has a customer for life.

The knife was exactly what I expected. It was so much sharper than any knife in my house that when I started cutting with it, it seemed that the knife went through what I was cutting before I started pushing it down. It definitely improved that preparation aspect of my cooking, and I would recommend it to anyone.

I absolutely love these knives. The profile of the blade is great and they are really sharp right out of the box. I purchased the Santoku, 8" chef, 6" Chef, Utility, Ultimate Utility, bread knife, and pairing knife. Not only are they a great looking set of knives to display in your kitchen, but they truly do take your cooking to another level. Some people complain that the polymer handle feels cheep, but these knives are perfectly priced for what they are. The polymer grip is comfortable and its profiled it such a way that it looks great. These knives truly show the mastery knife making at work at Sora. I also have a some Wusthoff Classics, Messermeister Elites, and a set of the Calphalon Katana. The Classics and Elites I love. The Katanas not so much. These Soras are the best knives in this price range and I love them. My favorite out of all of them has to be the 7" Santoku, but all of the others are great to.

Some people say they got rust spots on these knives. Well more expensive knives have a good side and a bad side. They are great because you get better blade profiles, with a blade that holds an edge a lot longer and is much easier to sharpen, but the down side is they are prone to rust. You shouldn't just leave these knives laying in a wet sink for days like you can do with cheaper knives. You should do that with any higher end knife because they will all get rust spots. Also I can not stress this enough. Do not put these knives in the dishwasher. When you finish using them. Hand wash them in soap and water. Hand dry them really good and put them back on your knife rack. Also make sure you knife isn't wet from placing wet knives on it. Putting your good knives on a wet knife rack is a good way to get rust spots.

Almost razor sharp. I was and continue to be very happy with this knife 6 months after buying. I take care of it by hand washing and drying after use and only use it on a wooden or plastic cutting board.

My husband is a chef by trade, and has been looking for a 'good' everyday knife for our kitchen to train me on. This one was recommended to me by a friend, and it has not disappointed us. It has great balance, and is incredibly sharp. Will buy more Shun products for him.

Our daughter and her roommates love this knife. One of the girls said she loved it so much she wanted to marry it. I'm guessing from this they are enjoy the use of knive. All knifes are not the same. I choose this knife for it's handle with the easy hand fit also for the fact it said the knives stay sharp. One other fact that food doesn't stick to the blade.
