Description

Originating in Seki City, Japan’s historical center for manufacturing samurai swords, Shun knives are heirs to a seven-century tradition of superior workmanship. Every Shun Classic knife is an outstanding example of form fulfilling function.

Both sides of their exquisitely forged VG-10 “super steel” blades are clad with 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel to produce a rust-free Dam

A light touch is all that’s necessary for these exceptionally sharp knives. The pakkawood handles, a fused blend of hardwood veneers and phenolic resin, are D–shaped for maximum comfort, and knives come with stainless steel bolsters and end caps.

This set includes an 8" carving knife and a 6½" carving fork to accommodate all your carving needs. Limited lifetime warranty. Made in Japan.

Features Hide

-Clad Construction
The wavy pattern on our blades is called a Damascus look; what gives it that pattern are 16 layers of SUS410 High Carbon Stainless Steel pounded to 3/1000th of an inch and then "clad" on each side of the VG10 core. This combination of materials gives the blade strength, stain resistance, and incredible cutting performance.

-The Cutting Edge
Shun's cutting edge is ground to an angle of 16 degrees making them extremely sharp; compare this to the best German knives which are only ground to only 22 degrees. The exotic Japanese steels used in the cutting core of our knives allow them to hold these razor sharp edges without the need for excessive re-sharpening.

-VG10 "Super Steel"
VG10 is a new type of stainless steel that has a higher density. This allows the steel to be tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 61, and still have the flexibility and strength to take and keep a perfect edge. VG10's natural tendency is to remain straight and true, so when it is used, the edge of the blade naturally straightens out and stays sharper longer.

-Kasumi Method
This is the traditional Japanese style of knife making where you take an extremely hard carbon steel used for the edge, then clad on each side a protective layer of stainless steel like our Shun Classic line. This is actually the process of how samurai swords are made.

Originating in Seki City, Japan’s historical center for manufacturing samurai swords, Shun knives are heirs to a seven-century tradition of superior workmanship. Every Shun Classic knife is an outstanding example of form fulfilling function.

Both sides of their exquisitely forged VG-10 “super steel” blades are clad with 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel to produce a rust-free Damascus-steel surface that reduces sticking and prep time.
