Description

Our Exclusive Shun Nagare Chef's Knife is ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. Chef's Knives are based on its Asian counterpart, the Gyuto. It offers a wider heel and a fairly flat profile toward the heel, perfect for push cuts, but Shun also gave it a little belly from mid-blade toward the tip so that it can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.

The Shun Nagare series features a Damascus blade made from two premium-quality, high-carbon stainless steels. 71 alternating micro-layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steels are roll-forged to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. The laminated steel is then hot forged to create the herringbone pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge. During normal use, the two steels will wear at different rates creating micro serrations along the edge so that the extremely sharp edge feels sharp longer. Etched laminations in the blade reduce drag, helping food release from the blade and gliding through each cut quickly and easily. With its soft, rounded lines, the ergonomically shaped handle fits the hand perfectly. The forged tang in the handle lends the knife a robust stability and provides an optimum counterweight to the blade. The riveted handle, which is fashioned from mottled grey-black pakkawood. Shun Nagare is the pinnacle of luxury class, artfully decorated with radial patterns of Damascus layers adorned by the highly polished blades.

    Perfect gift for a chef

    I have yet to give this gift to the person who I bought it for but it’s absolutely perfect and he’s tested this knife in person and loved the handle and sharpness- and he’s a chef but doesn’t have a knife this good for at home use.
