Description

Santoku means “three virtues” in Japanese, and this knife gets its name for the three strengths it demonstrates in the kitchen: cutting vegetables, thin-boned meats, and fish. Many cooks reach for their santoku at least as often as their chef’s knife.

This santoku’s slightly curved blade enables you to employ a rocking motion while cutting. A thinner blade makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European–style knives. Plus, oval indentions on the sides of blade reduce friction, ensuring clean, uniform cuts with minimal sticking.

Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary design features a beautiful Damascus-clad blade and D-shaped ebony pakkawood handle. Behind the knife’s beauty is function: a razor-sharp blade offering precision performance.

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 result is a knife that’s sharp, durable and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.

NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens.

Shun crafts masterpieces of both art and culinary weaponry. The Shun Classic Santoku blades are far above the competition in comfort and durability, likability, and asthetics.
I can't wait to come home from the farmer's market, with my fennel, carrots or fresh herbs, and chop them up. Often I cook for the mere pleasure I experience in weilding my new knives.
Though I have had them a while, they will always be new to me because all other santoku blades are behind me

WOW!
FINALLY! a knife that is as sharp as a good cook needs a knife to be. have been disappointed by previous knife purchases so many times, i can no longer count. even after sharpening them myself or using professionals to do the job, they are not nearly as sharp and effective as my new SHUN knife. chopping and slicing are now so easy because of this knife that my skills are improving and the look of the food items i am slicing and chopping is better, too. be careful, though...it's SHARP and must be handled and stored carefully

The last kitchen knife I will ever need to buy.
This knife is as close to perfection as a culinary instrument could be. The blade is one continuous taper and very sharp. I have been using the knife now for about a month and it has remained almost as sharp as when brand new. A few (and I mean only 3 or 4) strokes on a honing stick and its as sharp as when new. The weight and feel and everything about the knife is perfect. It's more than worth the price. I love this knife.

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my son in law who loves to cook. I have two of the Shun knives and I really love them. Exceptionall sharp, well balanced and fit comfortably in my hand. I only use these knives now. They make cutting meats or chopping vegetables a breeze. I highly recommend Shun knives. Once you try one, you will come back for more!
Denise J on Nov 27, 2016
I already have this Shun and absolutely love it! A chef definitely needs a knife like this to go everywhere with. Such a great price I figure I would stock up for future travel use and such.

I purchased the 10" Shun Classic slicer & fell in love with the feel & quality - Definitely my favorite of my better knives (Zwilling, Wusthof). Lefties beware - this handle is not ambidextrous.

does anyone know of individual storage covers that might be available for santoku knives other than purchasing the wooden storage block?
A shopper on May 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Messermeister plastic blade covers come in 1"" to 2"" wide. They should cover santoku blades, which are usually about 1 3/4"" wide at the most
Which Shun knife is best for chopping vegetables? Is it best to have two knives , one for chopping veggies and another for slicing meats?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can probably get away with just the one. It really depends what you're cooking.
do you sell a left handed version ? Price?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: We do not carry these knives in a left-handed version.
