A smaller version of the traditional Japanese noodle knife, the menkiri features a long, straight edge that creates stability when cutting straight down—perfect for cutting fresh pasta, chopping vegetables or creating a chiffonade of fresh herbs. Melding the sharpness of carbon steel with stainless steel’s corrosion resistance and ease of maintenance, Shun Blue represents a leap forward in knife technology. The blade features a core of blue steel—a fine-grained carbon steel known for taking a retaining an extremely sharp edge—sandwiched between two layers of corrosion-resistant stainless steel, resulting in a blazingly sharp knife that is still easy to maintain.
