Shun Elite Chef’s Knife, 6"

The chef’s knife is the kitchen workhorse: chop, dice and mince meat and vegetables with this smaller, easy-to-handle knife. Beautiful samurai-inspired cutlery was developed in partnership with Sur La Table. Made in Japan. 6"  
Shun Elite is a stunning combination of traditional Japanese styling and cutting edge technology. While every aspect of Shun Elite displays the exquisite attention to detail reminiscent of ancient samurai swords, the advanced SG2 powdered steel cutting core offers unparalleled performance, with the sharpest edges possible. SG2 is also known for its incredible edge retention. Shot-blasted stainless steel cladding provides strength, flexibility, and corrosion resistance, as well as reducing drag when cutting. Where the steels meet, a wavy hamon is formed, suggestive of the clay baking techniques on ancient swords. The ambidextrous PakkaWood handles, graced with an inlaid samurai faimy crest, are lightweight and nimble in the hand, making food prep enjoyable again.

  • SG2 powdered steel cutting core

  • 16-degree convex ground blades
  • Lighweight oblong PakkaWood handles
  • Traditional Japanese styling.

this is the one knife you need
if you only ever bought one knife in ur lifetime, this would be it. the powdered steel on the blade gives it a gorgeous and unique look. the handle fits just about every hand. it's got great balance and isn't too heavy or light. the 8 inch chef can chop, slice, dice, mince, debone, and fillet should you decide to use it in such a fashion. i wouldn't give mine up for any other

Versatile razor with a (comfortable) handle
I've been using this knife almost daily for several months. It's my baby. The thin blade makes it perfectly suited for technical work� sushi/sashimi/fine dice/julienne/etc. The handle has a subtle contour that makes it quite comfortable and natural to wield. While it has certainly handled everything I've thrown at it, using a knife like this seems like overkill. The knife feels like a piece of art�and it is. As such, I plan to keep using it but I'm considering picking up another ""workhorse"" for those day-to-day tasks
