Product Info

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. 

The chef's knife is the workhorse of the kitchen, idea for most meat and vegetable tasks.

  • Made from hard Japanese 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

I have been using this knife constantly for a week now, the balance is perfect and the edge retention of the blade is exceptional. This is truly a great knife. Shun knives are of high standards and quality.

My son was over the moon when I gave this knife to him for his birthday. He is a chef and about to go and explore the world a bit. According to my chef son and his chef friends these are the best knives in the world.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
