Features

  • Aogami #2 blue carbon steel takes a fine edge, holds it for a long time and sharpens more easily than stainless steel
  • Stainless steel cladding makes this knife easier to care for because only a small portion of the carbon steel core is exposed along the edge
  • Bead-blasted finish on the cladding enhances food release
  • Extra tall 2-1/8" blade height allows for more knuckle clearance and versatility
  • Contoured full-tang riveted moisture-resistant micarta handle with a smooth transition to the blade is comfortable and more durable than wood
  • 61-62 Rockwell Hardness; Hand-sharpened double-bevel 16° edge angle (each side)
  • Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty
  • Wash and dry by hand only. The area near the edge is carbon steel and will rust if not cared for properly. This area will darken and form a beautiful patina over time.

Description

The Shun Narukami Blue #2 Carbon Steel Chef's Knife is an all-purpose knife ideal for a full range of cutting tasks. Features a 10" blade ideal for preparing large fruits, vegetables, and proteins. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is exceptionally handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, this chef's knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Narukami's thin, sharp carbon steel blade makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef's knives.

For the love of carbon steel, Shun Narukami looks sharp and sharpens easily. Bead-blasted stainless steel cladding helps prevent corrosion on the carbon steel core, hides scratches, and helps with food release. Full-tang construction, and micarta handles, will make Shun Narukami your go-to for many culinary creations. Shun Narukami is a simple carbon steel alloy that provides excellent edge retention and toughness, and can be re-sharpened easily. Yet, like all carbon steels, Shun Narukami requires additional care. Cleaning and drying immediately is key. Over time, the edge will darken, developing a patina which, when formed, will also help protect the edge. Even after hours of food prep, resharpening is a breeze, if it needs it. This is why professional chefs prefer carbon steel. If you love carbon steel, you're going to love Shun Narukami.
