This shape of knife is specifically intended for chopping, slicing and shredding vegetables. The flat cutting edge makes slicing easy. Drawing the knife backwards through the food and allowing the flat blade to 'kiss' he board will ensure crisp clean slices of any kind of vegetable. The deep blade helps to guide your free hand so that you can chop like a pro. It shows off the unique pattern of the Damascus steel beautifully too. The square tip of the knife is lightly rounded for fine slicing. The lightweight laminated Pakka wood handle is contoured to fit into the right hand while the counterweight at the heel of the knife provides poise and balance.
Shun Knives are traditional Japanese blades made from 32 layer folded Damascus steel with a Rockwell hardness of 60-61. They are very light, poised and well balanced knives due to their half bolstered construction, lightweight Pakka wood handle and counterweighted heel. The blades are slightly convex in profile to give cleaner cutting performance. Each one is hand honed so that it leaves the factory at its very peak. These are top quality professional knives which can offer a lifetime of remarkable cutting performance.
