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

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.
