This stunningly beautiful Shun Classic chef's knife features the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without its rusting problems. It will prove itself to be the indispensable kitchen tool in no time.
The Damascus-look blade profile reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times. Shun Classic also features our uniquely stable "D" shape handle design. The "D" shape rests precisely in the curve of the fingers as they curl around the handle. The asymmetrical bolster is ground out more on the right side to provide proper finger placement and an easy, secure grip.
The knives balance perfectly, with the pivot point just ahead of where the handle sweeps out of the blade. In addition, the black Pakkawood handles provide the beauty of genuine wood, but since the wood is impregnated with a waterproof resin- they are as durable as plastic.
