Description

The Shun Classic Chef's Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The length is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.<br /><br />The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades with D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. The razor-sharp blades offer top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel provides incredible edge retention. Blades are handcrafted of durable clad with Damascus stainless steel, ground and bead-blasted creating a flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to hold. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty.

    Well made, well constructed

    I wanted a Shun 8-inch chef's that was lighter and more agile than my bulkier and stiff feeling Premier.

    The Classic solves the problem. It lis lighter (191 grams vs. 220 grams) and feels much more agile. Razor sharp out of the box and balance is pinch grip perfect. I really like this knife.

    perfect feel, balance and edge

    I bought this shun knife a month ago and it is so good it makes me feel disappointed in all my other knives. I will never buy any other brand again. I don't know why I waited so long.
