Shun Classic Chefs Knife (20cm)
Shun kitchen knives are made using state of the art technology and are highly esteemed all over the world – each Shun knife is handcrafted in Japan and requires at least 100 meticulous steps to complete. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to hold. The blade, angled at 16°, is known for extreme sharpness and edge retention. Each knife is clad with 16 layers on either side of a core VG-MAX high carbon stainless steel, while the wood grain pattern on the blade helps reduce friction. The D-shaped PakkaWood handle fits firmly in the hand increasing control and stability. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
If there is one knife that you simply can’t be without, it’s this one. The Shun Classic 8-inch Chef's Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The eight-inch length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Classic's thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.
