In Japanese, Shun means the precise moment at which a fruit or vegetable is perfectly ripe and perfect to eat. Named after this philosophy, the Shun range is dedicated to quality producing kitchenware.
The Shun Damascus series of knives from KAI is one of the most comprehensive damask steel series worldwide, made from specific stainless damask steel with 32 layers. The convex cut of the blade together with the manual honing of each Shun knife delivers an unrivalled sharpness.
Originating in Japan, Santoku means 'three virtues'. That's vegetables, meat, and fish - the three types of food most commonly cut in the kitchen. The scalloped edge helps to prevent food from sticking to the blade while slicing.
- Made from 32 layers of damask steel with a 16° bevel edge
- Constructed from a combination of high carbon steel and a high density stainless steel layer for extra rust resistance and strength
- Blades have a core of VG-10 steel with a Rockwell hardness of 61
- Black Pakka wood handle is formed into a D-shape which fits perfectly into the hand (designed for right handed use)
- Well balanced weight
