Description

A versatile, maneuverable kitchen workhorse, this chef’s knife is an outstanding example of form fulfilling function. The 7" blade is just a bit shorter than a traditional 8" chef’s knife, but provides all of the functions you need in a user-friendly package.

Shun Classic knives feature a core of proprietary VG-MAX super steel clad on both sides with 34 layers of Damascus stainless steel. The woodgrain pattern of the steel allows the blade to slide easily through food. The ebony pakkawood handle, a fused blend of hardwood veneers and phenolic resin, is D–shaped for maximum comfort. The result is a knife that’s sharp, durable and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.

Great Agile Knife
The asian chef's knife is an amazing little knife. At 7 inches, this IS, feels and handles smaller than 7 inches. I bought this as a gift and ended up buying myself one. Go figure.

Size : Feels and handles smaller. It's smaller because of the height of the blade.

Shape : Cross between Chef's knife and Santoku knife. Not too curved and not too flat.

Weight : This knife is light. Really light. Feels really agile. I feel like an iron chef using this knife.

Sharpness : Sharp as sharp can be. I am comparing to various knives and brands at this level.

Handle : Handle has a dark wood ring (?) on the handle but can't be seen on the photos. It's gorgeous, it looks one with the blade. The hold (where your thumb and index finger meet - don't know the proper name) of the knife is set at a great angle for me and feels comfortable.

Notes : If you are left-handed do not buy this knife. The handle is shaped for right handed users

Easy Handling
Used this knife at a relative's and couldn't get over how easy it cut...my favorite was a tomato and it sliced perfectly. It may not be intended to cut a tomato but you can't get me to believe that.

I bought this brand at SLT for someone else and they loved the quality of the item. I wanted to buy someone else a birthday gift and it came to mind. I came to the SLT website and saw this item was on sale and had positive reviews
