VG-MAX “SUPER STEEL” CORE The higher density of VG-MAX steel allows it to be tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 61 and still have the flexibility and strength to take and keep a perfect edge.
METICULOUSLY CRAFTED Each Shun Classic knife is constructed using the Kasumi method, a traditional Japanese process used to create samurai swords. Sixteen layers of high-carbon stainless steel are pounded to 3/1000ths of an inch, then clad on each side of the VG-MAX core. This 32-layer forged construction gives the blade strength, stain resistance, incredible cutting performance and an elegant Damascus pattern unique to each knife.
RAZOR-SHARP BLADE With a cutting edge ground to a 16° angle on each side, this is one of the sharpest knives you’ll ever find. Plus, the exotic Japanese steels used in the cutting core ensure the blade holds its ultra-sharp edge without the need for excessive re-sharpening.
USER-FRIENDLY DESIGN Comfortable D-shaped handle and perfectly balanced blade offer precise control and reduce fatigue during long, repetitive cutting tasks. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan.
Incredibly sharp edges, partnered with a stunning aesthetic, set Shun knives apart from every other kitchen knife on the market today. In the tradition of Seki’s sword smiths, every knife is hand made by highly skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete.
Every day, the legacy of ancient sword smiths serves as an inspiration to KAI’s artisans. This tradition of excellence, combined with the newest technology and advanced materials, makes every Shun knife a functional work of art.
